875. Christ Is the World's Redeemer

1. Christ is the world’s Redeemer,
The lover of the pure,
The fount of heavenly wisdom,
Our trust and hope secure;
The armor of His soldiers,
The Lord of earth and sky;
Our health while we are living,
Our life when we shall die.

2. Christ hath our host surrounded
With clouds of martyrs bright,
Who wave their palms in triumph,
And fire us for the fight.
Christ the red cross ascended,
To save a world undone,
And, suffering for the sinful,
Our full redemption won.

3. All glory to the Father,
The unbegotten One;
All honor be to Jesus,
His sole begotten Son;
And to the Holy Spirit—
The perfect Trinity.
Let all the worlds give answer,
Amen—so let it be.
