Great angels all adore Him 
and hearts both brave and true. 
Behold the Living Saviour 
Who makes creation new! 
Though slain from the foundation 
of all the world we know, 
He triumphs over evil, 
and in His steps we go. 

Remember how in Egypt 
God s people decked the door 
with blood from lambs to mark them 
their sons Death would passo'er. 
And now God s Son, the Lamb of God 
has shed His Blood to sign 
the Cross, the Christian s doorway 
into the Life divine. 

Death s stronghold could not hold Him. 
The gates of hell He smashed. 
Christ frees from Satan's clutching 
all souls His Blood has washed. 
Alive and risen from the dead 
in victory to reign, 
He soon returns. Behold Him! 
Hallelujah! Amen!
