Away with Gloom, Away with Doubt

Representative Text

1 Away with gloom, away with doubt!
With all the morning stars we sing;
with all the hosts of heaven we shout
the praises of a King,
alleluia! alleluia!
of our returning King;
alleluia! alleluia!
of our returning King.

2 Away with death, and welcome life;
in him we died and live again;
and welcome peace, away with strife!
for he returns to reign,
alleluia! alleluia!
the Crucified shall reign;
alleluia! alleluia!
the Crucified shall reign.

3 Then welcome beauty, he is fair;
and welcome youth, for he is young;
and welcome spring; and everywhere
let merry songs be sung,
alleluia! alleluia!
for such a King be sung!
alleluia! alleluia!
for such a King be sung!
