1. Sound the high praises of Jesus our king,
He came and He conquered, His victory sing;
Sing, for the pow’r of the tyrant is broken,
The triumph’s complete over death and the grave;
Vain is their boasting, Jehovah has spoken,
And Jesus proclaimed Himself mighty to save.
Sound the high praises of Jesus our king,
He came and He conquered, His victory sing.
2. Praise to the conqueror! Praise to the Lord,
The enemy quailed at the might of His Word;
In Heav’n He ascends and unfolds the glad story,
The hosts of the blessèd exult in His fame:
In love He looks down from the throne of His glory,
And rescues the ruined who trust in His name.
