Representative Text

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]

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.
