Lyrics

We homage pay to Christ, our king
With grateful hearts our tribute bring;
He died upon dark Calvary,
His blood has cleansed and made me free.

Refrain

We homage pay the Savior true,
Who guides our feet along the way;
We homage pay because ’tis due,
Our Lord and king, through every day.

We homage pay in deepest love
The glorious One who reigns above;
More perfectly His wondrous fame
To all the world we will proclaim.

Refrain

We homage pay before Thy throne,
Rejoiced to be in truth Thine own;
E’en though Thy name we praise, adore,
Each day we long to love Thee more.
