Lyrics

Hail, mighty Victor! Behold He comes from out the grave.
Shout, shout His triumph! Oh, tell abroad His power to save.
Sing, sing with gladness, proclaim the news o’er land and sea:
He reigns forever, great Ruler over all is He.

Shout His praise, for us He came to die.
But lo, He lives!
He reigns upon His Father’s throne on high.

Glory, laud, and honor unto Christ the Lord be given.
Praise Him! all ye people, mighty ruler of earth and Heav’n.
Praise Him! all ye stars of night.
Praise Him! all ye shining hosts of light.
Oh! that men would bless and praise His holy name,
Would praise His holy name.

[Repeat last stanza]
