Lyrics

Who came down from Heav’n to earth?
Jesus Christ our Savior;
Came a child of lowly birth?
Jesus Christ our Savior.

Refrain

Sound the chorus loud and clear,
He hath brought salvation near;
None so precious, none so dear:
Jesus Christ our Savior.

Who was lifted on the tree?
Jesus Christ our Savior;
There to ransom you and me?
Jesus Christ our Savior.

Refrain

Who hath promised to forgive?
Jesus Christ our Savior.
Who hath said, Believe and live?
Jesus Christ our Savior.

Refrain

Who is now enthroned above?
Jesus Christ our Savior;
Whom should we obey and love?
Jesus Christ our Savior.

Refrain

Who again from Heav’n shall come?
Jesus Christ our Savior;
Take to glory all His own?
Jesus Christ our Savior.
