Samuel W. Beazley


Easter dawns in gladness
On a world from death redeemed,
The radiant sun of glory
Over the night has streamed,
Death is trampled downward now
Where death triumphant seemed,
For Christ our Lord has arisen.


Rejoice, rejoice,
The Lord is ris’n indeed!
Go forth, go forth,

And bear the news with speed.
Go tell the ransomed captives
Now from death set free,
That Christ our Lord has arisen.

Lo! His chariots glorious now
Across the sky have rolled,
Look! look, the marshaled angels
Flood all the dark with gold;
Hark the joy bells chiming out
Where late the funeral tolled,
For Christ our Lord has arisen.


Mourners, cease your weeping now
And rest upon His Word,
For all in Jesus sleeping, shall
Come with Him restored;
With Him all your treasure keeping,
Labor for our Lord,
For Christ our Lord has arisen.
