1. Praise the Savior (Praise the Savior)
Now and ever; (Now and ever)
Praise Him, all beneath the skies;
Prostrate lying, suffering, dying
On the cross, a sacrifice.
Victory gaining, life obtaining,
Now in glory, He doth rise.
2. Man’s work faileth, (Man’s work faileth)
Christ’s availeth; (Christ’s availeth)
He is all our righteousness;
He, our Savior, has forever
Set us free from dire distress.
Through His merit we inherit
Light and peace and happiness.
3. Sin’s bond severed, (Sin’s bond severed)
We’re delivered; (We’re delivered)
Christ has bruised the serpent’s head;
Death no longer is the stronger;
Hell itself is captive led.
Christ has risen from death’s prison;
O’er the tomb He light has shed.
4. For His favor, (For His favor)
Praise forever (Praise forever)
Unto God the Father sing;
Praise the Savior, praise Him ever,
Son of God, our Lord and King.
Praise the Spirit; Through Christ’s merit
He doth us salvation bring.
