Full Text

Word of God, Who by Thy will
Madest all things as we see them;
By Thy glorious Passion, Thou,
From the shade of death didst free them.

We would join the glad refrain,
Ceaseless sung by all creation,
To the praise of Him whose works
Wake our souls to adoration.

Shattered now the bars of death,
Hades' gates are burst asunder,
For the Word of life arose
While creation gazed in wonder.

To Thy Name eternal praise
Every heart and voice engages;
All Thy works exalt Thy Name,
Through the endless course of ages.
