Break forth into praise! Our surety and head
His members to raise, hath rose from the dead;
The power of His Spirit hath quickened our Lord,
That we by His merit may all be restored.

Our captain and king with shouts we proclaim,
And joyfully sing the wonderful name;
The name all-victorious we publish, and feel
Triumphantly glorious o’er sin, earth, and hell.

The power of His rise we know and declare
And rapt to the skies, His happiness share;
In heavenly places with Jesus we sit,
And Jesus’ praises with angels repeat.

We sing of His love while sojourning here,
Till Christ from above our Savior appear;
The heirs of salvation with triumph receive,
In full consummation of glory to live.
