RAISE UP RAISE UP THE STANDARD,
Jesus, Jesus,
Across this land again
Heavens arches are ringing
Ringing ringing
With His beloved Name
Yesterday, today, forever the same! (x4)

Hear the glad sound, the Savior comes
The Savior promised long
Let every heart prepare a throne
And every voice a song
He comes, the prisoners to release
Their chains and fetters break
The iron bars before Him burst
The cells foundations shake

He comes, the broken heart to bind
The bleeding soul to cure
And with the riches of His grace
To bless the humble poor
He turns the darkness into light
He clears the mental ray.....
And on the eye long closed in night
He pours celestial day

(Most of verses words from Hymn ‘Hark the glad sound' by Phillip Doddridge (1702-1751) adap Godfrey Birtill)
