1 Raise your triumphant songs
To an immortal tune;
Let the wide earth resound the deeds
Celestial grace has done.
2 Sing how Eternal Love
Its chief Beloved chose,
And bade him raise our wretched race
From their abyss of woes.
3 'Twas mercy filled the throne,
And wrath stood silent by,
When Christ was sent with pardons down
To rebels doomed to die.
4 Now, sinners, dry your tears,
Let hopeless sorrows cease;
Bow to the scepter of his love,
And take the offered peace.
5 Lord, we obey thy call;
We lay an humble claim
To the salvation thou hast brought,
And love and praise thy name.
