9751. Believing Souls, Rejoice And Sing

1 Believing souls, rejoice and sing,
Your risen Savior see,
And say, "O death, where is thy sting!
O grave, thy victory?"
Rejoice, your conquering Savior lives,
He lives to die no more;
And life eternal freely gives,
Since He our sorrows bore.

2 Sing praises to our risen Lord;
Life, immortality,
And lasting bliss are now restored
For all, for you and me;
Believe the wondrous deed, my soul,
Adore His saving name;
Rejoice, ye saints, from pole to pole,
His love and power proclaim.

3 The Prince of glory bowed His head,
Expiring on the cross;
But now the Lord is risen indeed,
Is risen and lives for us;
Rejoice, and in the dust adore
The Lamb for sinners slain;
He liveth now and evermore,
For evermore to reign.
