1 Lift up, lift up your voices now!
The whole wide world rejoices now:
The Lord hath triumphed gloriously.
The Lord shall reign victoriously!
2 In vain with stone the cave they barred;
In vain the watch kept ward and guard;
Majestic from the spoilèd tomb,
In pomp of triumph Christ is come!
3 He binds in chains the ancient foe;
A countless host He frees from woe,
And heaven's high portal open flies,
For Christ has risen, and man shall rise.
4 And all He did, and all He bare,
He gives us as our own to share;
And hope and joy and peace begin,
For Christ has won, and man shall win.
5 O Victor, aid us in the fight,
And lead through death to realms of light;
We safely pass where Thou hast trod;
In Thee we die to rise to God.
6 Thy flock, from sin and death set free,
Glad Alleluias raise to Thee;
And ever with the heavenly host
Praise Father, Son, and Holy Ghost.
The Hymnal: revised and enlarged as adopted by the General Convention of the Protestant Episcopal Church in the United States of America in the year of our Lord 1892
Lift up, lift up your voices now . [Easter.] This hymn, in the American Episcopal Hymnal 1892, No. 119, is a mosaic made up of fragments of Easter hymns, pieced together without any regard to the continuity of the originals. It is principally from Dr. Neale's “The foe behind," &c, p. 1148, ii.; from his translation of "En dies est dominica," p. 330, ii.; and Mrs. Charles's version of "Aurora lucis," p. 94, i. [Voice of Christian Life in Song, &c, 1858. p. 100 : "The morning kindles all the sky.") This cento is repeated in several American collections. [Rev. James Mearns, M.A.]
