For the cause of Christ the King
FOR THE CAUSE OF CHRIST THE KING
we give our lives, an offering,
till all the earth
resounds with ceaseless praise
to the Son.
2. For the cause of Christ we go
with joy to reap, with faith to sow,
as many see
and many put their trust
in the Son.
Christ we proclaim,
the Name above every name:
for all creation, every nation,
God’s salvation through the Son!
3. For the King once lifted high
to cries of rage, of ‘Crucify!’,
endured the cross
as every sin was laid
on the Son.
4. To the King who conquered death
to free the poor and the oppressed,
for lasting peace,
for life and liberty
in the Son.
Christ we proclaim…
5. Let it be my life’s refrain:
‘To live is Christ, to die is gain’;
take up my cross and
follow the Son.
Christ we proclaim… (sing twice)
