1. Wake the echoes sweetly singing,
Hail this time of jubilee!
He who rose from death triumphant
Brings us glorious liberty.

Hallelujah! Hallelujah!
Praise and adoration bring;
Open wide your close-barred heart-doors
For the mighty Victor King!

2. All our dreary fears have vanished,
Heav’nly visions fill the way;
From the tomb of light eternal
Comes the Lord of Life today. [Refrain]

3. Wake the echoes, angel voices
Swell the chords of joy on high;
We on earth repeat the chorus;
Praise to Him who ne’er shall die. [Refrain]

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.
