68. Grand is the Song

1 Grand is the song of the Easter morn,
Victory is won! Victory is won!
Far o’er the hills with the light ‘tis borne,
Victory is won thro’ Christ!
Chasing the shades of night away,
Bringing the light of glorious day,
Taking from Death his strength and sway,
Victory is won through Christ!

2 Grand was the scene when the stone was rolled,
Victory is won! Victory is won!
Off from the sepulchre dark and cold,
Victory is won thro’ Christ!
Angels alone could view that sight;
Man could not bear that vision bright;
Forth came the Conq’ror armed with might,
Victory is won through Christ!

3 Grand was the word that the women brought,
Victory is won! Victory is won!
Mingled with wonders, with glories fraught,
Victory is won thro’ Christ!
“Seek not the living,” the angels said,
“Seek not the living among the dead;”
Sorrow is past and night is fled;
Victory is won through Christ!

4 Grand is this truth, O saints, for you,
Victory is won! Victory is won!
Yours is the joy and the blessing too,
Victory is won thro’ Christ!
Since Jesus took from Death his key,
He from the tomb will set us free;
And through all time and eternity.
Victory is won through Christ!
