How good to sing your praises, O god to praise your name.
The Lord of earth and heaven, whom all the angels praise.
With shouts of glad rejoicing that Christ, their king was raised!
Oh, sing, my soul, sing praises, and life your voice in song.
In grateful songs of triumph, to Christ who conquered wrong,
and died for our redemption to make our weakness strong.
Rejoice, my soul, in Jesus, whose life has made us one,
whose death is our salvation, whose light is like the sun,
who comes to live with in us, as God the Three-in-One.
Now kindle in us, Spirit, the life with-in the Word,
that burns like fire with-in us and carries Christ our Lord,
the sweet an holy gospel, a sharp and two-edged sword.
