Shout, shout for joy and sing

Representative Text

1 Shout! Shout for joy, and sing aloud with gladness!
Lo! In the east the star of hope appears;
Jesus has risen from the tomb triumphant,
Vanquished is death thro’ all the coming years.

Shout! Shout! Shout! Shout!
Shout for joy, and sing aloud with gladness,
Vanquished is death thro’ all the coming years.

2 Not with despair, we view the grave’s cold portals,
Jesus has robbed it of the darksome gloom;
Only the passageway from earth to heaven,
Bright with God’s light, is the once dreaded tomb. [Refrain]

3 We too shall rise from glory unto glory,
Free from earth’s fetters, clad with righteousness;
Shout! Shout for joy, ye angels, join the chorus;
He lives! The Christ, forevermore to bless. [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.
