Now Let the Vault of Heaven Resound!

Now let the vault of Heav’n resound
In praise of love that doth abound,
“Christ hath triumphed, alleluia!”
Sing, choirs of angels, loud and clear,
Repeat their song of glory here,
“Christ hath triumphed, Christ hath triumphed!”
Alleluia, alleluia, alleluia.

Eternal is the gift He brings,
Wherefore our heart with rapture sings,
“Christ hath triumphed, Jesus liveth!”
Now doth He come and give us life,
Now doth His presence still all strife
Through His triumph; Jesus reigneth!
Alleluia, alleluia, alleluia.

O fill us, Lord, with dauntless love;
Set heart and will on things above
That we conquer through Thy triumph,
Grant grace sufficient for life’s day
That by our life we ever say,
“Christ hath triumphed, and He liveth!”
Alleluia, alleluia, alleluia.

Adoring praises now we bring
And with the heavenly blessèd sing,
“Christ hath triumphed, Alleluia!”
Be to the Father, and our Lord,
To Spirit blest, most holy God,
Thine the glory, never ending!
Alleluia, alleluia, alleluia!

  1. Jesus Christ is risen today, Alleluia!
    Our triumphant holy day, Alleluia!
    Who did once, upon the cross, Alleluia!
    Suffer to redeem our loss, Alleluia!

    Hymns of praise then let us sing, Alleluia!
    Unto Christ, our heavenly King, Alleluia!
    Who endured the cross and grave, Alleluia!
    Sinners to redeem and save, Alleluia!

    But the pains which He endured, Alleluia!
    Our salvation hath procured, Alleluia!
    Now above the sky He’s king, Alleluia!
    Where the angels ever sing, Alleluia!

    Sing we to our God above, Alleluia!
    Praise eternal as His love, Alleluia!
    Praise Him, all you heavenly host, Alleluia!
    Father, Son, and Holy Ghost, Alleluia!

  2. Our church was so beautiful this morning with a cross to the left of the
    altar and easter lillies adorning the altar signifying Christ’s death, and resurrection. What a wonderful thing for us today and everyday to know that we are saved through Christ’s blood.
    A Happy, Blessed Easter To All…Kris

  3. Hi Kris and Sammy! We had a beautiful day here. The morning was really sunny — chilly, but deep blue skies. Down by the lake where Tom played at a church, it was cooler still, but lovely with the blossoms out on the trees and the birds singing. Em’s Easter hat kept blowing off. I’ll post some photos of her in her Easter attire. I found her pretty dress at Wal-mart a few weeks back. It’ll make a good birthday dress in July. It’s a little big for her as a 3T, but it will work for the rest of the summer for any dressy events. Tom rang the doorbell and told her there had been a delivery and to look for the Easter basket. She put her hands up despairingly. “But how will I find it, Mama?” Then she spotted it through the glass outside on the deck. I put a few little non-candy things in there – some dollar store coloring books and stickers, some sidewalk chalk and a little rabbit that hops amazingly well when you wind it up. She had a happy day coloring the front walk!
