Charles H. Gabriel (🔊 pdf nwc).

A victor, mighty victor,
The Lord of Heav’n arose,
From death’s enduring prison,
Triumphant o’er His foes;
He rose to life and glory,
That He might banish fear
From every heart that, loving,
Draws to His presence near.

Refrain

A victor, mighty victor,
Our Lord arose this day;
That He might lead us onward,
Within His blessèd way.

A victor, mighty victor,
Christ rose that Easter day;
’Twas all for us He suffered,
That we might learn His way;
He rose to fill with gladness
Each aching, sinful heart,
He rose to comfort sorrow,
To bid despair depart.

Refrain

A victor, mighty victor,
The Lord of Heav’n arose,
That we, too, might be risen
Triumphant o’er earth’s woes;
So let us join in singing
Our praise to Christ, whose love
Prepares for us a dwelling
With Him in Heav’n above.
