1Sing, ye faithful, sing with gladness!
Wake your noblest, sweetest strain!
With the praises of your Savior
Let His house resound again!
Here let all your music honor,
And your songs exalt His reign!
2Sing how He come forth from heaven,
Bowed Himself to Bethlehem’s cave,
Stooped to wear the servant’s vesture,
Bore the pain, the cross, the grave,
Passed within the gates of darkness,
Thence His banished ones to save!
3So He tasted death for all men,
He of all mankind the Head,
Sinless one among the sinful,
Prince of life among the dead;
So He wrought the full redemption,
And the captor captive led.
4Now on high, yet ever with us,
From His Father’s throne, the Son
Rules and guides the world He ransomed,
Till the appointed work be done,
Till He see, renewed and perfect,
All things gathered into one.
5Day of promised restitution!
Fruit of all His sorrows past!
When the crown of His dominion
He before the throne shall cast,
And throughout the wide creation
God be “all in all” at last. Amen.
