Break forth into praise! Our Surety and HeadHis members to raise, hath rose from the dead;The power of His Spirit hath quickened our Lord,That we by His merit may all be restored.
Our Captain and King with shouts we proclaim,And joyfully sing the wonderful Name;The Name all-victorious we publish, and feelTriumphantly glorious o’er sin, earth, and hell.
The power of His rise we know and declareAnd rapt to the skies, His happiness share;In heavenly places with Jesus we sit,And Jesus’ praises with angels repeat.
We sing of His love while sojourning here,Till Christ from above our Savior appear;The heirs of salvation with triumph receive,In full consummation of glory to live.
Lord, Thou in all things like wast madeTo us, yet free from sin;Then how unlike to us, O Lord,Replies the voice within.
Our faith is weak; O Light of light,Clear Thou our clouded view;That Son of Man, and Son of God,We give Thee honor due.
O Son of Man, Thyself hast provedOur trials and our tears;Life’s thankless toil and scant repose,Death’s agonies and fears.
O Son of God, in glory raised,Thou sittest on Thy throne:Thence, by Thy pleadings and Thy grace,Still succoring Thine own.
Brother and Savior, Friend and Judge!To Thee, O Christ, be givenTo bind upon Thy crown the namesMost blest in earth and Heaven.
Spirit of holiness, descend:Thy people wait for Thee;Thine ear in kind compassion lend;Let us Thy mercy see.
Thy light that on our souls hath shone,Lead us in hope to Thee;Let us not feel its rays alone,Alone Thy people be.
O bring our dearest friends to God;Remember those we love;Fit them on earth for Thine abode,Fit them for joys above.
Spirit of holiness, ’tis ThineTo hear our feeble prayer;Come, for we wait Thy power divine,Let us Thy mercy share.
