A HYMN FOR TODAY – Jesus, Our Lord and King

A HYMN FOR TODAY

Jesus, our Lord and King,

To You our praises rise;
To You our bodies we present,
A living sacrifice.

Now justified by grace
And made alive to God,
Formed for Yourself to show Your praise,
We sound Your love abroad.

As dead indeed to sin,
We rise to walk anew,
Henceforth, as not our own, but Yours,
We follow only You.

Baptized into Your death,
With You again we rise,
To newness of a life of faith,
To new and endless joys.

6.6.8.6 – Whitman’s Sing Unto the Lord, 1850

Tune: Trentham – Robert Jackson, 1888

#630 in Psalms, Hymns, and Spiritual Songs
