Hail, migh­ty Vi­ctor! Be­hold, He comes from out the grave.
Shout, shout His tri­umph! Oh, tell abroad His pow­er to save.
Sing, sing with glad­ness, pro­claim the news o’er land and sea:
He reigns for­ev­er, great Rul­er ov­er all is He.

Shout His praise, for us He came to die.
But lo, He lives!
He reigns up­on His Fa­ther’s throne on high.

Glory, laud, and hon­or un­to Christ the Lord be giv­en.
Praise Him! all ye peo­ple, migh­ty Rul­er of earth and Heav’n.
Praise Him! all ye stars of night.
Praise Him! all ye shin­ing hosts of light.
Oh! that men would bless and praise His ho­ly name,
Would praise His ho­ly name.
