His members to raise, hath rose from the dead;
The power of His Spirit hath quickened our Lord,
That we by His merit may all be restored.

2. Our captain and king with shouts we proclaim,

In heavenly places with Jesus we sit,
And Jesus’ praises with angels repeat.

4. We sing of His love while sojourning here,
Till Christ from above our Savior appear;
The heirs of salvation with triumph receive,
In full consummation of glory to live.
