Come, let us with united voice
Join in our Easter song;
The Lord is ris’n, let earth rejoice!
The joyful notes prolong!


We’ll sing in loud and joyous strain,
The Lord is ris’n, He lives again!
Heav’n echoes back the glad refrain,
The Lord is ris’n, He lives again!

Passed from the toil and agony,
Passed from the grave’s cold rest,
Passed through the portals of the tomb
To God, His Father’s breast.


No longer can the gloomy grave
Hold our redeeming Lord,
He conquered death, and lives again
According to His Word.


For evermore His ransomed ones
Exultingly shall sing:
O grave, where is thy victory?
And death, where is thy sting?
