(musicians use Burkhardt arrangement
Anthem: Ye Choirs of New Jerusalem C. V. Stanford

Print text:

Ye choirs of new Jerusalem, your sweetest notes employ,
The Paschal victory to hymn in strain of holy joy.
For Judah’s Lion bursts his chains, crushing the serpent’s head;
And cries aloud through death’s domains to wake the imprisoned dead.

Devouring depths of hell their prey at his command restore;
His ransom’d hosts pursue their way where Jesus goes before.
Triumphant in his glory now to him all pow’r is giv’n;
To him in one communion bow all saints in earth and heav’n.
While we, his soldiers, praise our King, his mercy we implore,
Within his palace bright to bring and keep us evermore

All glory to the Father be, all glory to the Son,
All glory, Holy Ghost, to Thee, while endless ages run.
Alleluia! Amen.
–St. Fulbert of Chartres (c. 952 – c. 1028 A.D)
