1 With high delight let us unite
in songs of great jubilation.
You pure in heart, all bear your part,
sing Jesus Christ, our salvation.
To set us free forever, he
is risen and send to all earth's ends
good news to save every nation.
2 True God, he first from death has burst
forth into life, all subduing.
His enemy now vanquished see;
his death has been death's undoing.
"And yours shall be like victory
o'er death and grave," says he, who gave
his life for us, life renewing.
3 Let praises ring: give thanks, and bring
to Christ our Lord adoration.
His honor speed by word and deed
to every land, every nation.
So shall his love give us above,
from misery and death set free,
all joy and full consolation.
