1 King of glory, King of peace
I will love you;
since your mercies never cease,
faith shall prove you!
You have granted my request,
you have heard me;
though my sinful soul transgressed,
you have spared me.

2 Praises with my utmost art
I will bring you;
songs of triumph from my heart
I will sing you.
Though my sins against me cried,
this shall cheer me:
God in Christ has justified
and will clear me.

3 Seven whole days not one in seven
I will praise you;
worship lifts the heart to heaven,
love obeys you!
Once you died, when no-one sought
to console you;
now eternity's too short
to extol you!
