Lyrics

Ye choirs of new Je­ru­sa­lem, your sweet­est notes em­ploy,
The Pas­chal vic­to­ry to hymn in strains of hol­y joy.

For Ju­dah’s Li­on bursts His chains, crushing the ser­pent’s head;
And cries aloud through death’s do­mains to wake the im­pri­soned dead.

From hell’s de­vour­ing jaws the prey alone our lead­er bore;
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.
—Ful­bert of Chartres (952–1028); tr. Ro­bert Camp­bell (1814-1868), Hymns and An­thems, 1850.
