Published in 3 hymnals
Thou New Jerusalem, arise and shine!
The glory of the Lord on thee hath risen!
Sion, exult! rejoice with joy divine,
Mother of GOD! Thy Son hath burst His prison!
O heavenly Voice! O word of purest love!
‘Lo! I am with you alway to the end!’
This is the anchor, steadfast from above,
The golden anchor, whence our hopes depend.
O CHRIST, our Pascha! greatest, holiest, best!
GOD’s Word and Wisdom and effectual Might!
Thy fuller, lovelier presence manifest,
In that eternal realm, that knows no night!
Hymns of the Eastern Church, 1866
Thou New Jerusalem on high. By J. M. Neale, from the Sarum Breviary, given in his Mediaeval Hymns, 1851. In revising it for the Hymnal, iv., 1854, Dr. Neale rendered it, "Ye choirs of New Jerusalem, To sweet new strains," &c. This was repeated in his Mediaeval Hymns, 2nd ed. 1863, with stanza ii. rewritten, and is the form of the hymn in common use.
