RAISE your triumphat songs

To an immortal tune,

Let the wide earth resound the deeds

Celestial grace has done.

Sing how Eternal Love

His Chief Beloved chose,

And bade him raise our wretched race

From this abyss of woes.

His hand no thunder bears,

No terror clothes his brow;

No bolts to drive our guilty souls

To fiercer flames below.

He shows his Father's love

To raise our souls on high;

He came with pardon from above

For rebels doomed to die.

Now, children, dry your tears,

Let hopeless sorrow cease;

Yours is the sceptre of his love,

And yours the offered peace.

Lord we accept thy call,

And lay an humble claim,

To the salvation thou hast brought,

And love and praise thy name.
