To him we come

To him we come-
Jesus Christ our Lord,
God’s own living Word,
his dear Son.
In him there is no east and west;
in him all nations shall be blessed;
to all he offers peace and rest-
loving Lord!

2. In him we live-
Christ our strength and stay,
life and truth and way,
Friend divine:
his power can break the chains of sin,
still all life’s storms without, within,
help us the daily fight to win-
living Lord!

3. For him we go-
soldiers of the cross,
counting all things loss
him to know;
going to every land and race,
preaching to all redeeming grace,
building his church in every place-
conquering Lord!

4. With him we serve-
his the work we share
with saints everywhere,
near and far;
one in the task which faith requires,
one in the zeal which never tires,
one in the hope his love inspires-
coming Lord!

5. Onward we go-
faithful, bold and true,
called his will to do
day by day;
till, at the last, with joy we’ll see
Jesus, in glorious majesty,
live with him through eternity-
reigning Lord!
