Break forth into joy, sing together,
ye waste places of Jerusalem:
for the Lord hath comforted His people,
He hath redeemed Jerusalem.

The Lord hath made bare his holy arm
in the sight of all people.

Hymns of praise then let us sing,
Unto Christ our Heav’nly King,
Who endured the cross and grave,
Sinners to redeem and save,
