Lyrics

O heart, be glad and gay,
A bless­èd hope we know;
Through clouds of dark­ness drear
The sun­shine bright doth flow;
The hand once pierced for me
Has gained a vic­to­ry,
My bless­èd Sav­ior rose to­day.

Refrain

The Christ arose to­day, the Lord di­vine,
The tomb with glo­ry-light doth shine;
Lift up your hearts and sing
To Christ, the vic­tor king,
The bless­èd One who lives for aye.

Earth robed in fair­est green
Blooms forth the Lord to greet;
The li­lies pure and white
Bend low to touch His feet;
A song of glad­ness pours
From morn’s un­fold­ing doors,
The bless­èd Sav­ior rose to­day.

Refrain

Oh, shout, ye star­ry choirs,
Let hal­le­lu­jahs ring;
He lives to die no more,
Our pro­phet, priest and king;
Enthroned in glo­ry bright,
To Heav’n’s eter­nal light,
The bless­èd Sav­ior rose to­day.
