Hymn of the Week – “Christ for the World!” We Sing

Music by Felice de Giardini (1769)
Poetry by Samuel Wolcott (1869)
Listen to MP3

“Christ for the world!” we sing;
The world to Christ we bring,
With loving zeal;
The poor and them that mourn,
The faint and overborne,
Sin-sick and sorrow-worn,
Whom Christ doth heal.

“Christ for the world!” we sing;
The world to Christ we bring,
With fervent prayer;
The wayward and the lost,
By restless passions tossed,
Redeemed at countless cost
From dark despair.

“Christ for the world!” we sing;
The world to Christ we bring,
With one accord,
With us the work to share,
With us reproach to dare,
With us the cross to bear,
For Christ our Lord.
