Can anyone tell me the name of this Hymn?

There is a hymn I used to sing a long time ago , but cant seem to find it anywhere, it has a line in it that changes slightly with each vers, and goes like this:

....."when Christ the saviour, saviour of the world is King"

....."when Christ the saviour, saviour of the world is come"

sorry, but these sre the only parts I remember, and I would appreciate any help. Thanks.

    I Cannot Tell

    I cannot tell why He whom angels worship

    Should set His love upon the sons of men

    Or why, as shepherd, He should seek the

    wanderers

    To bring them back, they know not how

    or when

    But this I know, that He was born of Mary

    When Bethlehem's manger was His only

    home

    And that He lived at Nazareth and

    laboured

    And so the Saviour, Saviour of the world

    is come.

    I cannot tell how silently He suffered

    As with His peace He graced this place

    of tears

    Or how His heart upon the cross was

    broken

    The crown of pain to three and thirty

    years

    But this I know, He heals the

    broken-hearted

    And stays our sin and calms our lurking

    fear

    And lifts the burden from the heavy

    laden

    For yet the Saviour, Saviour of the world

    is here.

    I cannot tell how all the lands shall

    worship

    When at His bidding every storm is stilled

    Or who can say how great the jubilation

    When all the hearts of men with love

    are filled

    But this I know, the skies will thrill with

    rapture

    And myriad, myriad human voices sing

    And earth to heaven, and heaven to

    earth will answer

    At last the Saviour, Saviour of the world

    is King!
