Now All the Vault of Heaven Resounds

Full Text

1 Now let the vault of heaven resound
In praise of Love that doth abound,
'Christ hath triumphed! alleluia'
Sing, choirs of angels, loud and clear,
Repeat their song of glory here,
'Christ hath triumphed, Christ hath triumphed!'
Alleluia, alleluia, alleluia.

2 Eternal is the gift he brings,
Wherefore our heart with rapture sings,
'Christ hath triumphed, Jesus liveth!'
Now doth he come and give us life,
Now doth his presence still all strife
Through his triumph; Jesus reigneth!
Alleluia, alleluia, alleluia.

3 O fill us, Lord, with dauntless love;
Set heart and will on things above
That we conquer through thy triumph,
Grant grace sufficient for life’s day
That by our lives we ever say,
'Christ hath triumphed, and he liveth!'
Alleluia, alleluia, alleluia.

4 Adoring praises now we bring
And with the heavenly blessèd sing,
'Christ hath triumphed and he liveth!'
Be to the Father and our Lord,
To Spirit blest, most holy God,
Thine the glory never ending!
Alleluia, alleluia, alleluia!
