1 Lo, Judah's Lion wins the strife
And conquers death to give us life.
Come, join in joyful praises!

2 As David, so our David too
The jeering huge Goliath slew.
Oh, sing with festive voices!

3 Our strongest, fiercest foe he foils
And waves aloft the victor's spoils.
Now let us sing his praises!

4 Our Samson storms death's citadel
And carries off the gates of hell.
Oh, praise him for his conquest!

5 The pow'r of death he broke in two
When he arose to life anew.
To Him all praise be given!

6 He frees the prisoned and oppressed
And pardons all whom sin possessed.
Oh, praise Him for his mercy!

7 In festal spirit, song, and word,
To Jesus, our victorious Lord,
All praise and thanks be rendered.

8 Praise God, all-holy and triune,
For this all-gracious, glorious boon;
Now gladly sing we Amen.
