Glory, hon­or, ma­jes­ty and pow­er
Be to Him now ris­en from the dead,
Who from death hath tak­en ev­ery ter­ror,
And hath made the grave a vic­tor’s bed.


Praise His name for­ev­er,
Lift up the voice in hon­or of our ris­en king!
Mighty to de­liv­er,
With an­gels we His praise will sing.

Songs of joy we sing in ex­ul­ta­tion,
Of our king, Re­deem­er, Lord of all!
For He lives, o’er sin and death vic­to­ri­ous;
Earth and Heav’n His migh­ty deeds ex­tol.


Angels praise Him, in the high­est glo­ry,
Cherubim and se­ra­phim adore;
While our hu­man hearts awake the cho­rus,
Jesus lives! He lives for­ev­er­more!
