Christ came to the earth to take up our condition,
    To rescue us sinners from death and disaster,
Redeeming by blood from mere human tradition
    Whatever it cost Him: “How great is our Master!”

How vast was the muster of all that’s unholy
    To challenge the Saviour, but His power was vaster;
Amidst their deployment His conduct was lowly,
    Yet love overthrew them: “How great is our Master!”

If man’s power was evil and Satan vexatious,
    Most sore was God’s sword stroke against Christ, our Pastor,
He bore it entirely because He is gracious:
    His ransomed saints praise Him - “How great is our Master!”
