Lyrics

All hail to the Prince of Life,
All hail to the Lord divine!
For over the whole glad earth
His glorious light shall shine!
He comes from the tomb of night,
The shadow of death laid by,
He comes as a Conqu’ror comes,
His banner of light on high.

Refrain

All hail to the Prince of Life!
Hosanna to Him we sing—
He comes as a mighty Victor,
He comes as a conquering King!

Go forward ye sons of men
And welcome the glorious King!
Go meet Him with songs of joy
That over His path shall ring!
He brings from the grave of death
The blessing of life and peace,
Who seeks Him shall find a part
In joys that shall never cease.

Refrain

Then come with your hearts of love
And come with your songs of praise,
For Christ who hath ris’n indeed
Your anthems of vict’ry raise!
For never in ages past
And never in coming years
Shall Victor and Monarch rise
Like Him whom the world reveres.
