You Choirs Of New Jerusalem

Your sweetest notes employ,
Of Jesus' victory to sing
In strains of holy joy.
For Judah's Lion has burst His chains,
Crushing the serpent's head;
And cries aloud through death's domains
To wake the imprisoned dead.

Hallelujah Hallelujah Hallelujah Hallelujah

Devouring depths of hell their prey
At His command restore;
His ransomed hosts pursue their way
Where Jesus goes before.
Triumphant in His glory now
To Him all power is given;
To Him in one communion bow,
All saints in earth and heaven.

While we, His soldiers, praise our King,
His mercy we implore.
Within His palace bright to bring,
And keep us evermore.
All glory to the Father be,
All glory to the Son,
All glory, Holy Ghost, to Thee,
While endless ages run.

St. Fulbert of Chartres (c 975-1028)
