1. Now hail we our Redeemer,
Eternal Son of God,
Born in the flesh to save us,
And cleanse us in His blood.
The Morning Star ascendeth,
Light to the world He lend eth,
Our Guide in grief and gloom

2. A man, of God be gotten,
Brought in the age of grace;
Lo, all the earth is radiant
With light, and hope, and peace.
Our prison He demolished,
Deathís power He abolished,
And opened heav-enís gate.

3. O Jesus, grant us mercy,
And grace on us be stow,
To walk by Thine own guidance,
Thy saving truth to know.
For Thee our hearts are yearning,
From worldly pleasures turning
Unto Thy righteousness.

4. In to Thy hand the Father
Gave all, that we might be
In bonds of faith united;
And dedicate to Thee
A people through Thy merit
Entitied to inherit
Thy realm eternally.
