O What a Savior!
Risen triumphant, exalted on high
Far above all other things,
Sitting in power and glory and might –
King above all other kings.
Victor through death over sin, death, and hell,
Girded with strength and a sword;
Conqueror reigning unchallenged in light –
Over all lords He is Lord.
Worthy of worship from all that He made,
Seated in strength all alone;
No one can purchase exemption or grace –
He is the King on His throne.
All knees will bow to this conquering King,
All tongues confess He is Lord;
Every dissenter and rebel will fall
Conquered at once by His Word.
This is the Savior who died for my sin,
Rose to declare I am free,
Offers a place on His throne now to me –
O what a Savior is He!
