Through moral worth and through God's sovereign choice;
A Priest to whom there can be no succession;
Thy voice will have no superseding voice.
We praise Thee as Thou art the Mediator
Of God and men, and ransom for us all;
Thou art a Man, yet Thou art the Creator,
And as a Man the answer to man’s fall.
Thou hast become our Patron with the Father,
And tell Him of the work that Thou hast done
For all those whom Thy love delights to gather,
Since Thou has tasted death for every one.
Whilst Thou are seated now at God’s right hand
We know that Thou dost care and understand.
