You choirs of New Jerusalem,
Your sweetest notes employ,
The Paschal victory to hymn
In strains of holy joy.
How Judah’s Lion bursts His chains,
And crushed the serpent’s head;
And brought with him, from death domains,
The long- imprisoned dead.
From hell’s devouring jaws the prey
Alone the Leader bore;
His ransomed hosts pursue their way
Where Jesus goes before.
Triumphant in His glory now
His sceptre ruleth all;
Earth, heaven, and hell before him bow,
And at his footstool fall.
While joyful thus his praise we sing,
His mercy we implore,
Into His palace bright to bring
And keep us evermore.
You Choirs Of New Jerusalem Lyrics
