Sing ye to the Lord,
for He hath triumphed gloriously.
Pharaoh’s chariots and his host
hath He cast into the sea.

Mighty Victim from the sky,
hell’s fierce powers beneath Thee lie;
Thou hast conquered in the fight,
Thou hast brought us life and light.

Now no more can death appall,
now no more the grave enthrall;
Thou hast opened Paradise,
and in Thee Thy Saints shall rise.

Mighty Victim from the sky,
hell’s fierce powers beneath Thee lie;
Thou hast conquered in the fight,
Thou hast brought us life and light;

Thou hast opened Paradise,
and in Thee Thy Saints shall rise.
Alleluia!
Amen.
