Sing we the prais­es of Je­sus,
The won­der­ful Sav­ior of men;
Sing how He died for our ran­som,
Yet liv­eth in glo­ry again;
Tell how His grace is suf­fi­cient
A world of lost sin­ners to save;
Tell how who­ev­er be­liev­eth
A per­fect sal­va­tion shall have.


Wounded for our trans­gress­ions,
Treading the wine­press alone;
Brought as a lamb to the slaugh­ter,
Jesus the In­fi­nite One.
Shall we not praise Him for­ev­er,
Worship His name and adore?
He who was slain, but now liv­eth again,
Is our Sav­ior for­ev­er­more.

To Beth­leh­em of Ju­dea
A babe in a man­ger He came;
Lived He a life of the low­ly,
Enduring the cross and its shame;
Tempted in all points as we are,
And yet with­out sin was He found;
God-man, our frail­ties He knows, and
His grace doth to sin­ners abound.


Glory to God in the high­est,
Our glad hearts ex­ult­ing­ly sing,
Praises for­ev­er and ev­er
To Je­sus our Sav­ior and king;
No more des­pised and re­ject­ed,
For sin­ners to suf­fer and die,
Worshipped, en­throned and ex­al­ted,
He liv­eth for­ev­er on high.
