Charles H. Gabriel, Jr. (1892–1934)

Wake the echoes sweetly singing,
Hail this time of jubilee!
He who rose from death triumphant
Brings us glorious liberty.

Refrain

Hallelujah! Hallelujah!
Praise and adoration bring;
Open wide your close-barred heart-doors
For the mighty Victor King!

All our dreary fears have vanished,
Heav’nly visions fill the way;
From the tomb of light eternal
Comes the Lord of Life today.

Refrain

Wake the echoes, angel voices
Swell the chords of joy on high;
We on earth repeat the chorus;
Praise to Him who ne’er shall die.

Refrain
