Suggested Tune THE GLORY SONG ( and refrain) by C H Gabriel

1. Christ is the glorious king of all kings,
hear how the angels his praises do sing!
He will return to see how we have lived
and to reward all who freely have served.                    Matthew 25:31-33

Come let us learn to live in love
pour ourselves out, live pure and true.
This is what Jesus will ask when He comes:
"Did you live for me, like I died for you?

2. The hope God's called us to moves us to serve;              Ephesians 1:18
His matchless great pow-er for us who believe -            Ephesians 1:19
that same great pow-er with which He raised Christ -     Ephesians 1:20
empowers us to make the sacrifice.

3. We are called to be the Body of Christ,
the fullness of Him who fills all in all ways.                    Ephesians 1:23
Though we so often like sheep go astray,
may we forever be your sheep, we pray!


4. Christ is the King, there's no end to His reign,                 Psalm 9:7
that rich inheritance promised His saints -                     Ephesians 1:18
it shines wherever love may find a face -
it finds it's fullness in God's saving grace.
