Representative Text

1 Death hath no terrors for the blood-bought one,
O glory hallelujah to the Lamb!
The boasted vict’ry of the grave is gone,
O glory hallelujah to the Lamb!

Refrain:
Jesus rose from the dead,
Rose triumphant as He said,
Snatch'd the vict’ry from the grave,
Rose again our souls to save—
O glory hallelujah to the Lamb!

2 Our souls die daily to the world and sin,
O glory hallelujah to the Lamb!
By the Spirit’s power as He dwells within,
O glory hallelujah to the Lamb! [Refrain]

3 We seek a city far beyond this vale,
O glory hallelujah to the Lamb!
Where joys celestial never, never, fail,
O glory hallelujah to the Lamb! [Refrain]

4 We’ll then press forward to the heav’nly land,
O glory hallelujah to the Lamb!
Nor mind the troubles met on ev’ry hand,
O glory hallelujah to the Lamb! [Refrain]

5 We’ll rise some day just as our Saviour rose,
O glory hallelujah to the Lamb!
Till then shall death be but a calm repose,
O glory hallelujah to the Lamb! [Refrain]
