Hymn/Song Information

O Christ thou Lord of worlds




O Christ, thou Lord of worlds,
thine ear to hear us bow
on this the festival of thine apostle now,
who taught to men thy power
to free from sin's offense
the souls of those that tread
the way of penitence.


Redeemer, save thy work,
thy noble work of grace,
sealed with the holy light
that beameth from thy face;
nor suffer them to fall
o Satan's wiles a prey
for whom thou didst on earth
death's costly ransom pay.


Pity thy flock, enthralled
by sin's captivity,
forgive each guilty soul
and set the bondmen free;
and those thou hast redeemed
by thine own passion sore
grant to rejoice with thee,
O King, for evermore.
