And from the cross on Calvary’s height gleams of eternity appear.
Here in o’erwhelming final strife the Lord of life hath victory,
And sin is slain, and death brings life, and earth inherits heaven’s key.

To praise your risen Lord.

His flesh with radiance glowed,
His hands and face He showed,
Those scars their silent witness gave
That Christ was risen from the grave.
Your voices raise with one accord
To praise your risen Lord.

O King of gentleness,
Do Thou our hearts possess,
And we to Thee will ever raise
The tribute of our grateful praise.
Your voices raise with one accord
To praise your risen Lord.

For the beauty of each hour
Of the day and of the night,
Hill and vale, and tree and flower,
Sun and moon and stars of light:
Father, unto thee we raise
This our joyful hymn of praise.

For the joy of ear and eye,
For the heart and brain’s delight,
For the mystic harmony
Linking sense to sound and sight:
Father, unto thee we raise
This our joyful hymn of praise.

For the joy of human love,
Brother, sister, parent, child,
Friends on earth and friends above,
For all gentle thoughts and mild:
Father unto thee we raise
This our joyful hymn of praise.

For each perfect gift of thine
To our race so freely giv’n,
Graces human and divine,
Flow’rs of earth and buds of heav’n:
Father unto thee we raise
This our joyful hymn of praise.
