1. God the Father's only Son,
And with Him in glory One,
One in wisdom, One in might,
Absolute and infinite;
Jesu, I believe in thee,
Thou art Lord and God to me.

2. Preacher of eternal peace,
Christ anointed to release,
Setting wide the dungeon door,
Unto sinners chained before;
Jesu, I believe in Thee,
Christ the Prophet sent to me.

3. Low in deep Gethsemane,
High on dreadful Calvary,
In the garden, on the cross,
Making good our utter loss;
Jesu, I believe in Thee,
Priest and Sacrifice for me.

4. Ruler of Thy ransomed race,
And Protector by Thy grace,
Leader in the way we wend,
And Rewarder at the end;
Jesu, I believe in Thee,
Christ, the King of kings to me.
