423. Praise the Savior

1. Praise the Savior
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. Man's work faileth,
Christ's availeth,
He is all our Righteousness.
He our Savior
Hath forever
Set us free from dire distress.
Thro' His merit
We inherit
Light, and peace, and happiness.

3. Sin's bonds severed,
We're delievered,
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. For his favor,
Praise forever
Unto God the Father sing;
Praise the Savior,
Praise Him ever,
Son of God, our Lord and King;
Praise the Spirit,
Thro' Christ's merit,
He doth us salvation bring.
