(Part of a series singing through the hymnbook I grew up with: Great Hymns of the Faith)
Lift up, lift up your voices now!
The whole wide world rejoices now;
The Lord hath triumphed gloriously,
The Lord shall reign victoriously.
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.
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.
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.
