1 Jesus Christ gives life and gladness
to a world of death and grief;
love, to conquer human madness,
and, to broken hearts, relief;
hope for doubt and joy for sadness,
faith to silence unbelief.

2 Jesus works through us, expressing
to the nations in their need
his great love; that all possessing
faith and hope, from bondage freed,
round the globe may join, confessing
'Jesus Christ is life indeed'.
