Hymn Source = The Hymnal 1982, of The Episcopal Church

Words (1866) by William Chatterton Dix (1837-1898)

1.  Alleluia! Sing to Jesus! his the scepter, his the throne;

Alleluia! his the triumph, his the victory alone;

Hark! the songs of peaceful Zion thunder like a mighty flood;

Jesus out of every nation hath redeemed us by his blood.

2.  Alleluia! not as orphans are we left in sorrow now;

Alleluia! his is near us, faith believes, nor questions how:

though the cloud from sight received him, when the forty days were o’er,

shall our hearts for forget his promise, “I am with you evermore”?

3.  Alleluia! Bread of heaven, thou on earth our food, our stay!

Alleluia! here the sinful flee to thee from day to day:

Intercessor, friend of sinners, earth’s Redeemer, plead for me,

where the songs of all the sinful sweep across the crystal sea.

4.  Alleluia! King eternal, thee the Lord of lords we own:

Alleluia! born of Mary, earth thy footstool, heaven thy throne:

thou within the veil hast entered, robed in flesh, our great High Priest;

thou on earth both Priest and Victim in the eucharistic feast.

5.  Alleluia! sing to Jesus! his the scepter his the throne;

Alleluia! his the triumph, his the victory alone;

Hark! the songs of holy Zion thunder like a mighty flood;

Jesus out of every nation hath redeemed us by his blood.

Words (1853) by George Rawson (1807-1889)

1.  Come to our poor nature’s night

With Thy blessed inwad light,

Holy Ghost the infinite,

Comforter divine.

2.  We are sinful, cleanse us, Lord;

Sick and faint, Thy strength afford;

Lost, until by Thee restored,

Comforter divine.

3.  Like the dew Thy peace distil;

Guide, subdue our wayward will,

Things of Christ unfolding still,

Comforter divine.

4.  With us, for us, intercede,

And with voiceless groanings plead

Our unutterable need,

Comforter divine.

5.  In us, “Abba, Father,” cry;

Earnest of the bliss on high,

Seal of immortality,

Comforter divine.

6.  Search for us the depths of God;

Upwards, by the starry road,

Bear to us Thy high abode,

Comforter divine.

1.  Welcome, Thou Victor in the strife,

Welcome from out the cave!

Today we triumph in Thy life

Around Thine empty grave.

2.  Our enemy is put to shame,

His short-lived triumph o’er;

Our God is with us, we exclaim:

We fear our foe no more.

3.  The dwellings of the just resound

With songs of victory;

For in their midst, Thou, Lord, art found,

And bringest peace with Thee.

4.  O let Thy conqu’ring banner wave

O’er hearts Thou makest free;

And point the path that from the grace

Leads heavenward up to Thee.
