1
Lift every voice and sing
Till earth and Heaven ring
Ring with the harmonies of liberty
Let our rejoicing rise
High as the listening skies
Let it resound loud as the rolling sea
Sing a song full of the faith
That the dark past has taught us
Sing a song full of the hope
That the present has brought us
Facing the rising sun
Of our new day begun
Let us march on till victory is won

2
Stony the road we trod
Bitter the chastening rod
Felt in the days when hope unborn had died
Yet with a steady beat
Have not our weary feet
Come to the place for which our fathers sighed
We have come over a way
That with tears has been watered
We have come treading our path
Through the blood of the slaughtered
Out from the gloomy past
Till now we stand at last
Where the white gleam of our bright star is cast

3
God of our weary years
God of our silent tears
Thou who hast brought us thus far on the way
Thou who hast by Thy might
Led us into the light
Keep us forever in the path we pray
Lest our feet stray from the places
Our God where we met Thee
Lest our hearts drunk with the wine
Of the world we forget Thee
Shadowed beneath Thy hand
May we forever stand
True to our God true to our native land

Lord I Lift Your Name On High

Song written by:
Original in English: Rick Founds

Lord I lift Your name on high
Lord I love to sing your praises
I’m so glad You’re in my life
I’m so glad You came to save me

You came from heaven to earth to show the way
From the earth to the cross my debts to pay
From the cross to the grave
From the grave to the sky

Lord I lift Your name on high

1
Low in the grave He lay Jesus my Savior
Waiting the coming day Jesus my Lord

Up from the grave He arose
With a mighty triumph o’er His foes
He arose a victor from the dark domain
And He lives forever with His saints to reign
He arose He arose
Hallelujah Christ arose

2
Vainly they watch His bed Jesus my Savior
Vainly they seal the dead Jesus my Lord

Up from the grave He arose
With a mighty triumph o’er His foes
He arose a victor from the dark domain
And He lives forever with His saints to reign
He arose He arose
Hallelujah Christ arose

3
Death cannot keep its prey Jesus my Savior
He tore the bars away Jesus my Lord

Up from the grave He arose
With a mighty triumph o’er His foes
He arose a victor from the dark domain
And He lives forever with His saints to reign
He arose He arose
Hallelujah Christ arose
