TLH 211: LO, JUDAH'S LION WINS THE STRIFE

Easter -- Organ Audio

1. Lo, Judah's Lion wins the strife
and conquers death to give us life.
Hallelujah!
Oh, let us sing his praises!

2. 'Tis he whom David did portray
when he did strong Goliath slay.
Hallelujah!
Oh, sing with gladsome voices!

3. Like Samson, Christ great strength out-poured
And conquered hell, its gates destroyed.
Hallelujah!
Oh, let us sing His praises!

4. The pow'r of death he broke in twain
when He to life arose again.
Hallelujah!
To Him all praise be given!

5. He led to freedom all oppressed
And pardon won for sin-distressed.
Hallelujah!
O praise Him for His mercy!

6. In festal spirit, song, and word,
To Jesus, our victorious Lord,
Hallelujah!
All praise and thanks be rendered.

7. All honor, glory, praise be given
Our Triune God, who reigns in heaven,
Hallelujah!
Now gladly sing we, Amen.
