  • Verse 1:Son of God, eternal Savior,Source of life and truth and grace,Word made flesh, whose birth among us,Honors all our human race,You our head, who, throned in glory,For your own will ever plead:Fill us with your love and pity;Heal our wrongs and help our need.

  • Verse 2:Come, O Christ, and reign among us,King of love and Prince of Peace;Hush the storm of strife and passion;Bid its cruel discords cease.By your patient years of toiling,By your silent hours of pain,Quench our fevered thirst for pleasure;Stem our selfish greed for gain.

  • Verse 3:Bind us all as one togetherIn your Church's sacred fold,Weak and healthy, poor and wealthy,Sad and joyful, young and old.Is there want or pain or sorrow?Make us all the burden share.Are there spirits crushed and broken?Teach us, Lord, to soothe their care.

  • Verse 4:As you, Lord, have lived for others,So may we for others live.Freely have your gifts been granted;Freely may your servants give.Yours the gold and yours the silver,Yours the wealth of land and sea;We but stewards of your bountyHeld in solemn trust will be.
