Hymn/Song Information

Raise your triumphant songs To tell the victory




Raise your triumphant songs
To an immortal tune;
Let the wide earth resound the deeds
Celestial grace has done.


Sing how eternal love
Its chief Beloved chose,
And bid him raise our wretched race
From their abyss of woes.


His hand no thunder bears,
Nor terror clothes his brow;
No bolts to drive our guilty souls
To fiercer flames below.


He shows his Father's love,
To raise our souls on high;
He came with pardons from above
For rebels doom'd to die.


'Twas mercy filled the throne,
And wrath stood silent by,
When Christ was sent with pardons down
To rebels doomed to die.


Now, sinners, dry your tears,
Let hopeless sorrow cease;
Bow to the sceptre of his love,
And take the offered peace.


Lord, we obey thy call;
We lay an humble claim
To the salvation thou hast brought,
And love and praise thy name.


---Alternative verses---


Raise your triumphant songs
To tell of victory won;
Let the wide earth resound the deeds
Celestial grace has done.


Sing how Eternal Love
His Chief Beloved chose,
And bade him raise our wretched race
From their abyss of woes.


Sing how eternal love
Its chief Beloved chose,
And bade him raise our ruined race
From their abyss of woes.


His hand no thunder bears,
No terror clothes his brow;
No bolts to drive our guilty souls
To fiercer flames below.
