1. This is the threefold truth
    On which our faith depends;
    And with this joyful cry
    Worship begins and ends;

    Christ has died!
    Christ is risen!
    Christ will come again!

  2. By this we are upheld
    When doubt and grief assails
    Our Christian fortitude,
    And only grace avails.

  3. This is the threefold truth
    Which, if we hold it fast,
    Changes the world and us
    And brings us home at last.
