Hymn/Song Information

O for a shout of sacred joy To God the




O for a shout of sacred joy
To Christ the sovereign King!
Let every land their tongues employ,
And hymns of triumph sing.


Jesus, our Lord, ascends on high;
His heavenly guards around
Attend him rising through the sky,
With trumpet's joyful sound.


While angels shout and praise their King,
Let mortals learn their strains;
Let all the earth his honours sing;
O'er all the earth he reigns.


Speak forth his praise with awe profound;
Let knowledge guide the song;
Nor mock him with a solemn sound
Upon a thoughtless tongue.


Oh, for a shout of sacred joy
To God the sovereign King!
Let every land their tongues employ,
And hymns of triumph sing.


---Alternative verses---


Rehearse his praise with awe profound;
Let knowledge lead the song;
Nor mock him with a solemn sound
Upon a thoughtless tongue.
