Raise up, raise up the standard

Raise up, raise up the standard,
Jesus, Jesus, across this land again.
Heaven’s arches are ringing,
Ringing, ringing with His beloved name:
Yesterday, today, forever the same.
Yesterday, today, forever the same.
Yesterday, today, forever the same.
Yesterday, today, forever the same.

Hear the glad sound, the Saviour comes,
The Saviour promised long.
Let every heart prepare a throne
And every voice a song.
He comes the prisoners to release,
Their chains and fetters break;
The iron bars before Him burst,
The cells’ foundations shake.

He comes the broken heart to bind,
The bleeding soul to cure;
And with the riches of His grace,
To bless the humble poor.
He turns the darkness into light,
He clears the mental ray,
And on the eye long closed in night
He pours celestial day.
