Christ For the World We Sing

Christ For the World We Sing

Christ for the world we sing,
the world to Christ we bring
With loving zeal,
the poor and them that mourn

The faint and over-borne,
sin-sick and sorrow-worn

whom Christ doth heal.

Christ for the world we sing,
the world to Christ we bring
With fervent prayer;
the wayward and the lost

By restless passions tossed
Redeemed at countless cost
from dark despair.

Christ for the world we sing,
the world to Christ we bring
With one accord,
with us the work to share

With us reproach to dare
With us the cross to bear
for Christ our Lord.

Christ for the world we sing,
the world to Christ we bring
With joyful song,
the newborn souls whose days

Reclaimed from error’s ways
Inspired with hope and praise
to Christ belong.
