A Poor Brother's Hymnal
Monday, April 02, 2007
  Rejoice, Angelic Choirs, Rejoice
Rejoice, angelic choirs, rejoice! Rejoice now, all creation!
Let trumpets loudly raise their voice to hail the Lord's salvation;
Let all Christ's holy priesthood sing
The triumph of their mighty king
In festive celebration!

O earth, exult in radiance bright, illumined by Christ's splendor!
Your darkness now is put to flight; to him due praises render!
Be glad, O Church! Sing out your songs!
Your temples fill with shouting throngs
To hail the glorious victor!

Let all who gather round this flame, the sign of Christ's arising,
The deathless light of Christ accplaim, His saving mercy prizing
That all may live by faith in Him
Who conquered death, despair and sing,
To make us his forever.

All my favorite hymns. Most of them are from before the Reformation.
