In the grace we have come to know in Jesus Christ,
God has turned our sorrow into dancing,
stripped away our gloom and clothed us with gladness.
We can no longer remain silent;
we must sing praises to God!
Raise your voices and lift your hearts.
Let all the earth rejoice!
A flock of birds drops from its high-wire perch.
What happy variety shakes the air!
