1 None but Jesus! Son eternal
from before our world began:
taking off his robes of glory
Christ became a mortal man,
and, to liberate the guilty
from a web of sin and loss,
as a criminal he suffered
on a lonely, shameful cross.

2 In the presence of his Father
he was eager to remain
yet to please him and obey him
Jesus chose that path of pain;
and, because he died to save us,
we can know his words are true:
"As my heavenly Father loves me,
brothers, sisters, I love you!"

3 Precious Saviour: who is like him -
so forgiving, patient, kind?
Let us learn by his example,
serving Christ with heart and mind.
May we follow as he leads us
and his praise forever sing
when in heaven he makes us welcome
at the banquet of the King.
