II.VII. Let us our Hearts and Voices raise

1 Let us our Hearts and Voices raise,
To sound the mighty Saviour's Praise,
And sing he dy'd, and lives again
For us, the fallen Sons of men.

2 He bare our Curse, our Debt he paid,
When all our Woes on him were laid;
Our Midnight Darkness chas'd away,
And rais'd to eternal Day.

3 'Tis finish'd, saith the dying God,
For Man, cries all his Wounds and Blood:
salvation finish'd was for us,
In Jesus, bleeding on the Cross.

4 He, fainting, felt Death's rude Divorce,
To put his Testament in force;
Wherein to Man he did bequeath
The Labours of his Life and Death.

5 Quickly he breaks Death's feeble Chain,
And to his Throne ascends again;
There sits adorn'd with Wounds and Blood,
And calls the wand'rers Home to God.

6 Let all the Sons of Sion sing
Unwearied Praise to Christ their King,
He is our Saviour, God, and we
Will sound his Name eternally.
