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.
