We meet again with hearts aflame,
To praise the dear Redeemer’s name
With voices full of love and song;
Behold a happy throng!


Then shout aloud, while hills resound
Re-echo with a joyful sound;
Let Christ be king! let Christ be king!
To Him our praise we bring!

We thank our Savior and our Lord
For all the sweetness of His Word,
The cross at which we laid our sin,
The crown we hope to win.


O teach us, Lord, in this glad hour
The greatness of Thy Spirit’s power;
Reign Thou supreme in every heart—
The King of Love Thou art.


Be with us in our every home,
Be with us in the days to come;
May Saved to Serve our motto be,
While working still for Thee.
