93. The Christ is Come

1 When heaven swung open its portals wide,
A Saviour came forth to be crucified;
For sinners he lived and for sinners died:
‘Twas Jesus the Saviour, mighty to save.

Refrain:
Rejoice! rejoice! let glad hearts sing!
Let hallelujah anthems ring!
The Christ is come! The Christ is come!
Rejoice! rejoice! And crown him King!

2 When sorrow and sin, and death’s night were near,
A Saviour was found who could dry ev’ry tear,
He pardon’d all sin and removed all fear:
‘Twas Jesus the Saviour, mighty to save. [Refrain]

3 When God in his infinite love did save
A world lost in sin, it was Jesus who gave
Himself as Redeemer, and mock’d the grave:
‘Twas Jesus the Saviour, mighty to save. [Refrain]
