You Choirs of New Jerusalem

You choirs of new Jerusalem:
Your sweetest notes employ
The Easter victory to praise
In songs of holy joy!

For Judah's Lion burst his chains
And crushed the serpent's head;
He cries aloud through death's domains
To wake the imprisoned dead.

Devouring depths of hell their prey
At his command restore;
The 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.

All glory to the Father be,
The Spirit and the Son:
All glory to the One in Three
While endless ages run.

Christian Poetry by Fulbert of Chartres
