1 On the promised third day morning, Jesus walked from Joseph's tomb,
Thus on Satan he served warning of an everlasting doom;
For the grave could not retain him, though the human path he trod,
But the bands of death must yield him, as he was the Son of God.

Chorus:
We shall rise; we shall rise;
In the resurrection morning we shall rise.
We shall rise; We shall rise;
Hallelujah, hallelujah, we shall rise.

2 This gives hope in Jesus coming, for the saints who sleep in him;
They shall waken in the morning, then their eyes shall ne'er grow dim;
Tho' by nature they are mortal, and are subject to decline,
They shall then be made immortal, and in Jesus' image shine. [Chorus]

3 When the graves give up their treasure, and the dead to life are brought,
Then their joy no one can measure, who with Jesus' blood were bought;
For the prophets have been writing of that day so soon to come;
And a few are still delighting in the thought of home, sweet home. [Chorus]

4 Glory! Glory be to Jesus! For this resurrection hope;
How it thrills, and tends to shield us, in the midst of much false hope;
We will tell it, we will sing it, while we wait the day foretold;
Still we'll tell it, and will sing it, when we walk the streets of gold. [Chorus]
