Lo! the Lord, the mighty Savior,
Quits the grave, His throne to claim;
Object of His endless favor,
God o’er all exalts His name;
Those who hate Him—
Clothed with everlasting shame.

Shout for joy, with songs of praises,
Ye who in His name delight;
Shout, for God our Savior raises
To His throne, in endless might!
’Tis Jehovah
Crowns our Lord in realms of light!

God His servant lifts to glory,
Bids Him all His honors share:
Now, Jehovah, we adore Thee,
And Thy righteousness declare:
Endless praises—
Shall Thy ransomed church prepare.
