To Jesus Christ Our Sovereign King

To Jesus Christ, our sov’reign King,
Who is the world’s salvation,
All praise and homage do we bring
And thanks and adoration.
Refrain:
Christ Jesus, Victor!
Christ Jesus, Ruler!
Christ Jesus, Lord and Redeemer!

Thy reign extend, O King benign,
To ev’ry land and nation,
For in Thy Kingdom, Lord divine,
Alone we find salvation
Refrain.

To Thee and to Thy Church, great King,
We pledge our hearts’ oblation,
Until before Thy throne we sing
In endless jubilation.
Refrain.

Thy majesty shall be the praise
And thanks of ev’ry nation;
To Thee the world with joy shall raise
The voice of exultation.
Refrain.

May God the Father, God the Son
And God the Spirit bless us!
Let all the world praise Him alone,
Let solemn awe possess us.
Refrain.

Words: Fr. Martin B. Hellriegel, 1941.
Music:Christus Rex (Ich Glaub An Gott),” from Mainz Gesangbuch, 1870.
