Lyrics

My blessè­d Lord was cru­ci­fied,
The day was dark, and grief was wide,
For hope was crushed and all seemed vain,
Until that Sav­ior rose again.

Refrain

Ring out the bless­èd news again!
Oh! bear aloft the strain;
The migh­ty Lord is ris’n in pow­er,
He died, but not in vain!

He brings His great sal­va­tion nigh,
And on His love bids us re­ly;
He bought our peace through grief and pain;
But oh! He did not die in vain!

Refrain

O, won­drous news of life and love!
That Je­sus lives and reigns above!
He made the path to glo­ry plain;
Ah, no! He did not die in vain.
