1. Lift up, lift up your voices now!
The whole wide world rejoices now;
The Lord has triumphed gloriously,
The Lord shall reign victoriously.

2. In vain with stone the cave they barred;
In vain the watch stayed up to guard;
Majestic from the stone cold 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 we shall win.

4. O Victor, aid us in the fight,
And lead through death to realms of light;
We safely pass where You have trod;
In You we die to rise to God.
