1 Joyfully now our songs are resounding,
As to our Savior each heart a tribute brings;
Sweetly the echoes too, are rebounding,
Echoes of praises unto the King of Kings.
He is Lord of all,
And He alone is worthy of our adoration!
We His name extol, For He it was who gave His life for our salvation;
Wonderful His love!
And with our song we will repeat the blessed story,
Till in Heav’n above
With the redeemed of earth we give to Him the glory.
2 Strangely He wro’t the Father’s commission;
Teaching and preaching the Word in Galilee;
Bearing the scorn of lowly position,
That from the burden of sin we might be free.
Blessed be His name,
His glory shall endure, and He shall reign forever!
Unto us He came
The yoke of sin to bear, the bonds of death to sever;
Loud hosannas sing!
Hosanna to the Son of David, the victorious!
Crown Him, crown Him King,
And make His praise thro’out the earth forever glorious!
