Oh, sing with exultation,
Sing to the Lord, rejoice,
And in His congregation
Shout with triumphant voice.
For, lo, at God’s right hand
Is Christ in glo­ry seated;
With death and hell defeated,
As Victor doth command.

Since Christ, our Lord, is living,
We nevermore shall die;
To God the glo­ry giving,
We rise to Him on high.
Though chastened we may be
And to our graves be taken,
We unto life shall waken
And live eternally.

Christ is the sure foundation
The builder did reject,
But He for our sal­va­tion
Is precious and elect
And made the corner-stone
On which the Church is founded;
This marvel now is sounded,
The work of God alone.

To Thee, O Christ, be glo­ry,
Who camest in His name!
Thy people sing the story
Thy praises to pro­claim.
We thank Thee and adore,
O Christ, our Lord and Sav­ior;
Thy grace and boundless favor
Stand fast for­ev­er­more.
