Lyrics: Father, in Thy perfect wisdom, sent Thy Son on earth to live.
Humbly now our thanks we offer; praise to Thee, Thy Son we give.
Help us always to remember that He suffered infinitely
For our sins, our pains, and sorrows in the Garden, on the Tree.

Willingly He gave His life up, for none else could take away.
Doing always Father's biding, perfect light to show the way.
Paradise's grand reunion: brought salvation over the veil.
Gaining sweet completed victory over death, the grave, and hell.

Rose the third day in full glory, now the resurrected Lord
Lives again and now forever, as our advocate, Thy Word.
He provides us resurrection: all creation saved by Thy make,
And a way to life eternal if Thy path we then will take.

Send again thy living Savior cloth'd in pow'r and majesty.
Let us always be found watching. Ready and on bended knee.
Singing praises and rejoicing. All Thy glories we will then see.
With Thee and Thy chosen Savior, may we spend eternity.
