730. Now Let the Heav'ns Be Joyful

1 Now let the heav'ns be joyful,
Let earth her song begin,
The round world keep high triumph,
And all that is therein.
He is risen! He is risen!
Christ the Lord is risen!
Our joy shall have no end.

2 From death to life eternal,
From earth on to the sky,
Our Christ has brought us over
With hymns of victory.
He is risen! He is risen!
Christ the Lord is risen!
Our joy shall have no end.

3 Let all things seen and unseen
Their notes of gladness blend,
For Christ the Lord is risen;
Our joy shall have no end.
He is risen! He is risen!
Christ the Lord is risen!
Our joy shall have no end.
