Christ is the world’s Redeemer

Christ is the world's redeemer,
the lover of the pure,
the fount of heavenly wisdom,
our trust and hope secure,
the armor of his soldiers,
the lord of earth and sky,
our health while we are living,
our life when we shall die.

Christ has our host surrounded
with clouds of martyrs bright
who wave their palms in triumph
and fire us for the fight.
For Christ the cross ascended
to save a world undone
and suffering for the sinful
our full redemption won.

Down in the realm of darkness
he lay a captive bound,
but at the hour appointed
he rose, a victor crowned,
and now, to heaven ascended,
he sits upon the throne
in glorious dominion,
his Father's and his own.

Glory to God the Father,
the unbegotten One;
all honor be to Jesus,
His sole-begotten Son;
and to the Holy Spirit-
the perfect Trinity.
Let all the worlds give answer:
'Amen-so let it be!'

Latin; attributed to (521-597); trans. Duncan McGregor (1854-1923)
