1.  O sing with exultation,

Sing to the Lord, rejoice!

And in His congregation

Shout with triumphant voice!

For, lo, at God’s right hand

Is Christ in glory seated,

With death and hell defeated,

As victor He doth stand.

2.  Since Christ, our Lord, is living

We nevermore shall die;

To God the glory giving

We rise to Him on high;

Though chastened we may be,

And to our graves be taken,

We unto life shall waken

And live eternally.

3.  Christ is the sure foundation

The builders did reject,

But He for our salvation

Is precious and elect,

And made the cornerstone,

On which the church is founded,

This marvel now is sounded

The work of God alone.

4.  To Thee, O Christ, be glory,

Who camest in His name,

Thy people sing the story

Thy praises to proclaim;

We thank Thee and adore,

O Christ, Our Lord and Savior,

Thy grace and boundless favor

Stand fast forevermore.
