201. Let Our Choir New Anthems Raise

Let our Choir new anthems raise:
Wake the morn with gladness:
GOD Himself to joy and praise
Turns the Martyrs’ sadness:
This the day that won their crown,
Opened Heav’n’s bright portal;
As they laid the mortal down,
And put on th’ immortal.

Translator: John Mason Neale (1862)
