I Lift up,

lift up your voi - ces now ; The whole wide world re

joic - es now:

The Lord hath triumphed glo-rious-ly, The Lord shall reign vic - to-rious - ly. A - MEN.

2 In vain with stone the cave they barred; And hope and joy and peace begin, In vain the watch kept ward and guard: For Christ has won, and man shall win. Majestic from the spoiled tomb,

5 O Victor, aid us in the fight, [light: In pomp of triumph Christ is come.

And lead through death to realms of 3 He binds in chains the ancient foc; We safely pass where Thou hast trod;

A countless host He frees from woe, In Thee we die to rise to God.
And heaven's high portal open flies, 6 Thy flock, from sin and death set free,
For Christ has risen, and man shall rise.

Glad alleluias raise to Thee ; 4 And all He did, and all He bare, And ever with the heavenly host He gives us as our own to share ; Praise Father, Son, and Holy Ghost.

Cento, based on Rev. John M. Neale, 1854 103 (NARENZA) S. M. I BEYOND the starry skies,

And when He stooped to earth,
Far as the eternal hills,

And suffered rude disdain,
There, in the boundless world of light, They cast their honors at His feet,
Our great Redeemer dwells.

And waited in His train. 2 Around Him angels fair,

5 They saw Him on the cross, In countless armies, shine;

While darkness veiled the skies, And ever, in exalted lays,

And when He burst the gates of death, They offer songs Divine.

They saw the Conqueror rise. 3“Hail, Prince of life!” they cry, 6 They thronged His chariot-wheels, “Whose unexampled love

And bore Him to His throne; Moved Thee to quit these glorious realms Then swept their golden harps, and sang, And royalties above."

“The glorious work is done.' Cento, based on Rev. James Fanch, 1776, and Rev. Daniel Turner, 1794

2 Our hearts be pure from evil, 3 Now let the heavens be joyful That we may see aright

Let earth her song begin ; The Lord in rays eternal

Let the round world keep triumph, Of resurrection-light;

And all that is therein ;
And, listening to His accents,

Invisible and visible,
May hear, so calm and plain,

Their notes let all things blend, His own “All hail!”' and hearing, For Christ the Lord hath risen, May raise the victor-strain.

Our Joy that hath no end.
John of Damascus (8th cent.). Tr. Rev. John M. Neale, 1862 : verse 1, l. 1, alt.

1 LIGHT of the lonely pilgrim's heart, In unison with all our hearts,
Star of the coming day,

And calls aloud for Thee.
Arise, and with Thy morning beams

4 Come, then, with all Thy quickening Chase all our griefs away.

With one awakening smile, (power, 2 Come, blessèd Lord, bid every

shore And bid the serpent's trail no more And answering island sing

Thy beauteous realms defile. The praises of Thy royal Name,

5 Thine was the cross, with all its fruits And own Thee as their King.

Of
grace
and

peace Divine: 3 Lord, Lord, Thy fair creation groans, Be Thine the crown of glory now, The air, the earth, the sea,

The palm of victory Thine.

2 Still we wait for Thine appearing; 4 Save us in Thy great compassion,

Life and joy Thy beams impart, O Thou mild, pacific Prince ; Chasing all our fears, and cheering Give the knowledge of salvation, Every poor benighted heart.

Give the pardon of our sins. 3 Come and manifest the favor 5 By Thine all-restoring merit

God hath for our ransomed race; Every burdened soul release; Come, Thou glorious God and Saviour, Every weary, wandering spirit Come and bring the gospel grace.

Guide into Thy perfect peace.

Rev. Charles Wesley, 1744: verse 3, 1. 3, alt. EAGLEY C. M.
