1 Exalt the Lord of glory,
Ring out his praise!
Proclaim the wondrous story,
Loud anthems raise!
Tell it out o’er land and sea,
Mighty Prince of Life is he,
Pow’r victorious, ever glorious,
Over earth he sways.
Tell it out o’er land and sea,
Mighty Prince of Life is he,
Pow’r victorious, ever glorious,
Over earth he sway.
Once he left his heav’nly home,
Dwelt a lowly stranger her,
Bore earth’s sharpest griefs alone,
Hunger’s pang and sorrow’s tear,—
Suffer’d all at Love’s behest,
And for sinner’s willingly,
Wrought on Calvary’s awful crest,
Salvation free!

2 Exalt the Lord of glory,
Ever the same!
Proclaim the wondrous story,
Ring out his fame!
Life and death his vassels are,
Naught his people have to fear,
Joy supernal, hope eternal!
Thro’ Christ’s mighty name!
Life and death his vassels are,
Naught his people have to fear,
Joy supernal, hope eternal!
Thro’ Christ’s mighty name!
Not since we lov’d him, ah no!
But since he lov’d us, he came;
Only Love could suffer so,—
Endless praises to his name;
Angels hail your glorious King;
Saints your conquering Lord adore;
Earth and heav’n his honors sing
For evermore!
