Representative Text

1 He died to show his boundless love,
Our glorious Redeemer;
He lives to plead for us above,
Our glorious Redeemer.
Let ev’ry heart be glad and gay,
For sorrow’s night has passed away,
A light divine he brings today,
Our glorious Redeemer.

He lives triumphant evermore,
Whom angels bright in heav’n adore;
Come sound his praise from shore to shore,
Our glorious Redeemer.

2 He rose to give us life anew,
Our glorious Redeemer;
He makes his blessed promise true,
Our glorious Redeemer.
No more with hopeless grief we weep,
For death is not an endless sleep,
His faithful ones he’ll safely keep,
Our glorious Redeemer. [Refrain]

3 We’ll praise him thro’ eternity,
Our glorious Redeemer;
O’er death he gained the victory,
Our glorious Redeemer.
Redeemed by his unfailing grace,
Sometime we’ll see him face to face,
In heaven’s high and holy place,
Our glorious Redeemer. [Refrain]

Lizzie De Armond was a prolific writer of children's hymns, recitations and exercises. When she was twelve years old her first poem was published in the Germantown, Pa. Telegraph, however, it was not until she was a widow with eight children to support that she started writing in earnest. She wrote articles, librettos, nature stories and other works, as well as hymns.
