Young men in Christ the Lord,
Own Him your Savior God,
His name adore;
For by His wondrous sacrifice,
He paid the great redemption price,
That all might have eternal life,
That come to God through Him.

Young men in Christ the Lord,
Be mighty in His Word,
Its truths declare;
And seek the Holy Spirit’s power,
By faith and persevering prayer,
That ye may witness anywhere,
That sinful men are found.

Young men in Christ the King,
Your grateful tribute bring,
Of love and praise;
United in His royal name,
With loyal hearts His Word proclaim,
Throughout the world to all young men,
Ye must be born again.

Young men in Christ the friend,
On Him all hopes depend,
Of true relief;
To every burdened soul you meet,
His gracious, loving words so sweet,
Come unto Me, with love repeat,
And I will give you rest.

Young men in Christ, arise,
The world before you lies,
Enslaved in sin;
Make haste to swell the mission band,
Prepared to go at His command,
To save lost men in every land,
At any sacrifice.

Young men in Christ the Son,
In Him we all are one;
For this He prayed;
Then let us join the heavenly throng,
To sound His praise in endless song,
For all we have and are belong
To Christ, our Lord divine.
