371. Smile praises, O sky!

1 Smile praises, O sky!
Soft breathe them, O air!
Below and on high,
And everywhere;
The black troop of storms
has scatter'd and fled,
The Lord hath arisen,
The Lord hath arisen,
Unharm'd from the dead.

2 Sweep tides of rich music
The new world along,
And pour in full measure
Sweet lyres, your song,
Sing, sing, for He liveth,
He lives, as He said;
The Lord hath arisen,
The Lord hath arisen
Unharmed from the dead.

3 Clap, clap your hands, mountains;
Ye valleys, resound;
Leap, leap for joy, fountains;
Ye hills, catch the sound:
All-triumph! He liveth,
He lives, as He said;
The Lord hath arisen,
The Lord hath arisen,
Unharmed from the dead.

Amen.
