Sing the loud anthem o'er land and o'er sea;
The Savior is risen, his people are free.

Strong was the tomb, but its fetters are broken,
And from its dark slumbers He rises to save:
Oh, vain were its terrors! of sin the dread token!
Emmanuel conquers the tyrant -- the grave.

Strike the loud cymbal o'er land and o'er sea;
The Savior has risen, his chosen are free.

Praise to the Victor! He dies not again:
Now o'er his dominions in justice shall reign.

Who can be silent! Oh, tell the glad story,
Of loud hallelujahs to swell the full tide!
For Jesus the slain now comes forth in his glory,
And all that reject him shall fall in their pride.

Shout the loud anthem o'er land and o'er sea;
Jehovah has triumphed, his kingdom is free.
