You are the Christ, O Lord

1. You are the Christ, O Lord, the Son of God most high! For ever be adored that Name in earth and sky, in which, though mortal strength may fail, the saints of God at last prevail!

2. Oh! Peter was most blest with blessedness unpriced, who, taught of God, confessed the Godhead in the Christ! For of your Church, Lord, you made known this saint a true foundation-stone.
