Hallelujah We Shall Rise Hymn Lyrics and Story

Hallelujah! We Shall Rise is another hymn that I want to share with you. It is a song filled with a message of hope about the future.

It really resonates with all of us concerned with the state of affairs in the world today. A world full of violence and misery.

The author of today's hymn is John Edmond Thomas. He was born on December 6, 1860 and died on April 30, 1946.

His father died when he was only 14 and being the oldest son he was forced to work to support his family.

John E Thomas
Despite of this he managed to attend a vocal school at the age of 17 and was tutored by Professor T A Bridge and later un­der Ho­ra­tio Palm­er and George A. Good­rich.

Later in life he with Franklin Eiland and John Greer found the Trio Music company in 1890.

He thus spent his life as music compiler and publisher.

Among the songs he composed include, Glorious Gospel Train, I Am So Glad Salvation's Free and I am a Child of the King.


Below are the lyrics of this hymn, Hallelujah We Shall Rise.

In that Resurrection morning
When the trumpet of God shall sound
We shall rise, (hallelujah) we shall rise.
Then the saints will come rejoicing and
no tears will e'er be found
We shall rise, (hallelujah) we shall rise.

We shall rise, (hallelujah) we shall rise (amen)
We shall rise, (hallelujah)
In that Resurrection morning
when these prison bars are broken
We shall rise, (hallelujah) we shall rise.

In that Resurrection morning
when the shades of life has fled
We shall rise, (hallelujah) we shall rise.
In the day of glory dawning when the sea
gives up His dead
We shall rise, (hallelujah) we shall rise.

I shall see my blessed Savior
who so freely died for me
We shall rise, (hallelujah) we shall rise.
And our fathers and our mothers and our
loved ones we shall see
We shall rise, (hallelujah) we shall rise.
