Glory! Life begun!

Sing hallelujah!
The grave has given birth,
the tomb has revealed life,
the tears have watered joy.

Glory! Life eternal!

Sing hallelujah!
Heaven is unwavering,
wonder is imperishable,
love is not weary.

Glory! Life temporal!

Sing hallelujah!
Every breath is new,
the dust is a miracle,
our stories continue.

Glory! Life resurrected!

Sing hallelujah!
Hope forbears for another day,

earth turns from dawn to dusk,
faith holds on through fear.

Glory! Hallelujah!
