Christ Crucified, our Song

Don Fortner

(Tune: #11 When All Thy Mercies, O My God -- CM)


O blest Redeemer, dying Lamb,

       We love to hear of You:

       No music’s so sweet as Your name,

       No love like Yours so true.


Christ crucified shall be our theme, -

The message of the Word.

We’ve come to magnify Your name,

And worship our dear Lord.


Oh, let us hear Your voice today,

       In mercy speak to us. -

       Oh, give Your servant grace, we pray,

       And speak through him to us!


Your name above all names we’ll praise,

       Though all things here decay,

       The name of Jesus Christ we’ll praise

       Until our dying day!


Then, when we’ve joined the white-robed crowd,

       Bowing before Your throne,

       With sweeter voice, we sing more loud, –

       Christ crucified , our song!
