TLH#208 Ye Sons and Daughters of the King

TLH#204  |  All Hymns  |  TLH#210

1. Ye sons and daughters of the King,
Whom heav'nly hosts in glory sing,
Today the grave hath lost its sting:
Alleluia! Alleluia! Alleluia!

2. On that first morning of the week,
Before the day began to break,
The Marys went their Lord to seek:
Alleluia! Alleluia! Alleluia!

3. An angel bade their sorrow flee,
For thus he spake unto the three:
"Your Lord doth go to Galilee":
Alleluia! Alleluia! Alleluia!

4. That night the Apostles met in fear;
Amidst them came their Lord most dear
And said: "Peace be unto you here":
Alleluia! Alleluia! Alleluia!

5. When Thomas afterwards had heard
That Jesus had fulfilled His word,
He doubted if it were the Lord:
Alleluia! Alleluia! Alleluia!

6. "Thomas, behold My side," saith He,
"My hands, My feet, My body, see;
"And doubt not, but believe in Me":
Alleluia! Alleluia! Alleluia!

7. No longer Thomas then denied;
He saw the feet, the hands, the side;
"Thou art my Lord and God," he cried:
Alleluia! Alleluia! Alleluia!

8. Bless├Ęd are they that have not seen
And yet whose faith hath constant been,
In life eternal they shall reign:
Alleluia! Alleluia! Alleluia!

9. On this most holy day of days
To God your hearts and voices raise
In laud and jubilee and praise:
Alleluia! Alleluia! Alleluia!

10. And we with holy Church unite,
As evermore is just and right,
In glory to the King of light:
Alleluia! Alleluia! Alleluia!

Amen.
