we too sing for joy and say:

3. He who bore all pain and loss
comfortless upon the cross
lives in glory now on high
pleads for us and hears our cry:

4. He, once dead within the grave,
is exalted now to save;

how the lost may be restored,
how the penitent forgiven,
how we too may enter heaven:

all your ransomed people feed!

let us sing by night and day:
