Hymn/Song Information

The eternal gifts of Christ the King




The eternal gifts of Christ the King,
The Apostles’ glorious
deeds, we sing;
And while due hymns
of praise we pay,
Our thankful hearts cast grief away.


The Church in these
her princes boasts,
These victor chiefs of warriors hosts;
The soldiers of the heavenly hall,
The lights that rose on earth for all.


’Twas thus the yearning
faith of saints,
The unconquered hope
that never faints,
The love of Christ
that knows not shame,
The prince of this world overcame.


In these the Father’s glory shone;
In these the will of God the Son;
In these exults the Holy Ghost;
Through these rejoice
the heavenly host.


Redeemer, hear us of Thy love,
That, with this glorious band above,
Hereafter, of Thine endless grace,
Thy servants also may have place.


---Alternative verses---


The eternal gifts of Christ the King,
the apostles' glory, let us sing,
and all, with hearts of gladness, raise
due hymns of thankful love and praise.


For they the Church's princes are,
triumphant leaders in the war,
in heavenly courts a warrior band,
true lights to lighten every land.


Theirs is the steadfast faith of saints,
and hope that never yields nor faints;
and love of Christ in perfect glow
that lays the prince of this world low.


In them the Father's glory shone,
in them the will of God the Son,
in them exults the Holy Ghost,
through them rejoice
the heavenly host.


To thee, Redeemer, now we cry,
that thou wouldst join
to them on high
thy servants,
who this grace implore,
for ever and for evermore.
