1 Blessed Saviour, we adore thee; we thy love and grace proclaim. Thou art mighty; thou art holy. Glorious is thy matchless name! Chorus: Glorious glorious is thy name, O Lord! 2 Great Redeemer, Lord and Master, light of all eternal days, let the saints of every nation sing thy just and endless praise! 3 From the throne of heaven's glory to the cross of sin and shame, thou didst come to die a ransom, guilty sinners to reclaim! 4 Come, O come, immortal Saviour, come and take thy royal throne. Come, and reign, and reign forever, be the kingdom all thine own!
