1 ‘Jesus is risen!’ Lift up your glad voices!
Night’s dreary shadows are vanished away;
Hark, at the tidings the wide earth rejoices!
‘Jesus is risen, is risen today!’

2 Death’s iron bondage his strong hands have broken;
‘Come,’ speaks the angle, ‘behold where he lay!
Faithful the promise his own lips have spoken:
Jesus is risen, is risen today!’

3 Fair by his open grave blossoms the garden;
Life follows death, bloom is born of decay,
Song after sorrow, and peace after pardon:
‘Jesus is risen, is risen today!’

4 Light dawns in darkness, and comfort in sadness;
Death shall no longer our spirits dismay;
Tears turn to praises, and griefs change to gladness:
‘Jesus is risen, is risen today!’
