                              THE LUTHERAN HYMNAL

                 (St. Louis: Concordia Publishing House, 1941)


        1. Oh, sing with exultation,

        Sing to the Lord, rejoice,

        And in His congregation

        Shout with triumphant voice.

        For, lo, at God's right hand

        Is Christ in glory seated;

        With death and hell defeated,

        As Victor doth command.

        2. Since Christ, our Lord, is living,

        We nevermore shall die;

        To God the glory giving,

        We rise to Him on high.

        Though chastened we may be

        Andto our graves be taken,

        We unto life shall waken

        And live eternally.

        3. Christ is the sure Foundation

        The builder did reject,

        But He four our salvation

        Is precious and elect

        And made the Corner-stone

        On which the Church is founded;

        This marvel now is sounded,

        The work of God alone.

        4. To Thee, O Christ, be glory,

        Who camest in His name!

        Thy people sing the story

        Thy praises to proclaim.

        We thank Thee and adore,

        O Christ, our Lord and Savior;

        Thy grace and boundless favor

        Stand fast forevermore.
