Jesus, Alpha and Omega,
God before the world began,
First and last,
Mighty Word and Son of Man,
Liberator! Author of salvation's plan!
You have loved us! You have freed us!
Made of us a chosen race, royal priesthood,
holy nation, your own people, born of grace!
Ever living King forgiving,
soon we'll see you face to face!
With the clouds return in glory;
you have sworn it!
Come and stay!
"God who was and is and will be,"
Strengthen us to watch and pray!
Find us steady, faithful, ready!
Hasten, Jesus! Speed that Day!
