1. The bells of Easter sweetly peal:
Christ is risen! Christ is risen!
They chime the hope He doth reveal,
This joyful Easter day.
The Lord of Life hath gone on high;
Christ is risen! Christ is risen!
Rejoice, with swelling notes they cry!
Rejoice, rejoice! they say.

Refrain
Shines the glorious heav’nly portal!
Angel songs we almost hear!
O the joy of life immortal.
When in glory we appear.
O the joy of life immortal.
When in glory we appear.

2. The shining Easter angels say:
Christ is risen! Christ is risen!
Come, see the place where Jesus lay,
He’s ris’n: He is not here.
No longer held in death’s embrace;
Christ is risen! Christ is risen!
Ye shall behold Him face to face,
In glory to appear. [Refrain]

3. Repeat the tidings far and wide!
Christ is risen! Christ is risen!
No longer Christ the crucified,
But Christ the mighty King.
For us exalted evermore;
Christ is risen! Christ is risen!
While the heav’nly hosts our Lord adore,
Let all creation sing! [Refrain]
