Sing we triumphant hymns
if you do not hear the tune, click
Sing we triumphant hymns of praise,
new hymns to heaven exulting raise.
Christ, by a road before untrod,
ascendeth to the throne of God.
O grant us thitherward to tend,
and with unwearied hearts ascend
toward thy kingdom's throne, where thou,
as is our faith, art seated now.
Be thou our joy and strong defense,
who art our future recompense.
So shall the light that springs from thee
be ours through all eternity.
O risen Christ, ascended Lord,
all praise to thee let earth accord,
who art, while endless ages run,
with Father and with Spirit one.
Words: The Venerable Bede, Hymnum canamus gloriae, 11th c.;
