Alpha, Omega, beginning and end,
Who is, who was, and who is yet to come—
May grace and peace now upon us descend
From Father, Spirit, and Christ the Son.
Lord Jesus Christ, First and Last, faithful e’er,
Once You were dead; now You live evermore.
The keys to death and to hell You now bear.
You rule the kings of earth by Your power.
To Him who loves us and shed His own blood—
All of our sins in His body He bore,
Made us a kingdom and priests serving God—
To Him be glory, power evermore!
Look, He is coming! With clouds He’s adorned.
All eyes will see Him when He comes again.
Because of Him, all earth’s peoples will mourn.
So shall it be! Amen and amen.
