Hymn #245: You choirs of new Jerusalem

Change to large font

1. You choirs of new Jerusalem:
your sweetest notes employ
the Easter victory to praise
in songs of holy joy!

2. For Judah's Lion burst his chains
and crushed the serpent's head;
he cries aloud through death's domains
to wake the imprisoned dead.

3. Devouring depths of hell their prey
at his command restore;
the ransomed hosts pursue their way
where Jesus goes before.

4. Triumphant in his glory now
to him all power is given;
to him in one communion bow
all saints in earth and heaven.

5. All glory to the Father be,
the Spirit and the Son:
all glory to the One in Three
while endless ages run.
