If you know where to get a good pho­to of Tur­ner (head & shoul­ders, at least 200×300 pix­els),


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.


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.


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.


Resurrection of Christ
