Welcome Thou Victor In The Strife

Welcome, Thou Victor in the strife,
Welcome from out the cave!
Today we triumph in Thy life
Around Thy empty grave.

Our enemy is put to shame,
His short-lived triumph o’er;
Our God is with us, we exclaim,
We fear our foe no more.

The dwellings of the just resound
With songs of victory;
For in their midst Thou, Lord, art found,
And bringest peace with Thee.

O let Thy conquering banner wave
O’er hearts Thou makest free;
And point the path that from the grave
Leads heavenward up to Thee.
