#131: Lift Up, Lift Up Your Voices Now

Standard

(Part of a series singing through the hymnbook I grew up with: Great Hymns of the Faith)

1

Lift up, lift up your voices now!

The whole wide world rejoices now;

The Lord hath triumphed gloriously,

The Lord shall reign victoriously.

2

In vain with stone the cave they barred,

In vain the watch kept ward and guard;

Majestic, from the spoiled tomb,

In pomp of triumph Christ is come.

3

And all He did and all He bare

He gives us as our own to share;

And hope and joy and peace begin,

For Christ has won, and man shall win.

4

O Victor, aid us in the fight,

And lead thru death to realms of light;

We safely pass where Thou hast trod,

In Thee we die to rise to God.
