Lyrics

We greet the smil­ing East­er­tide,
And sing the bless­èd sto­ry,
The Lamb of God, the Cru­ci­fied,
Is liv­ing now in glo­ry.

Refrain

Living now in glo­ry,
Living now in glo­ry;
Tell it far and wide, that He who died
Is liv­ing now in glo­ry.

He lives to take our sins away,
Our pre­sent migh­ty Sav­ior;
To help us serve Him, ev­ery day,
And show His grace and fa­vor.

Refrain

Then let us come, a joy­ful throng,
While all the birds are sing­ing,
Glad measu­res of the new, new song
From hap­py voices ring­ing.
