Wonderful Savior, blessèd Redeemer,
Ever in glory, dwelling above;
Yet in His mercy tenderly smiling,
Over the children bending in love.


We will adore Him, gather and praise Him,
Voices in concert joyfully blend;
His be the kingdom, power and glory,
Now and forever, world without end.

Sing of His greatness, infinite greatness,
Sing of His goodness day after day;
Guarding from evil, shielding from danger,
Leading us onward, cheering the way.


He is our refuge, He is our safeguard,
Peace to the youthful kindly He brings;
Sweet is the promise He will protect us,
He will defend us under His wings.
