E108. Praise the Saviour

1 Praise the Saviour
Now and ever!
Praise Him all beneath the skies!
Prostrate lying,
Suff'ring, dying,
On the cross, a Sacrifice;
Vict'ry gaining,
Life obtaining,
Now in glory He doth rise.

2 All is finished;
And accomplished;
Christ is now our Righteousness:
He our Saviour,
Hath forever
Set us free from dire distress.
Thro' His merit
We inherit
Light and peace and happiness.

3 We're delivered,
Our bonds severed,
Christ hath bruised the serpent's head;
Death no longer
Is the stronger,
Hell itself is captive led.
Christ hath risen
From death's prison,
O'er the tomb He light hath shed.

4 Praise forever
For His favor
Unto God the Father sing;
Praise the Saviour,
Praise Him ever,
Son of God, our Lord and King;
Praise the Spirit,
Thro' Christ's merit,
He doth us salvation bring.
