1312. Easter Song (Andrews)

1. We a band of faithful workers,
In the army of the Lord;
Jesus is our Captain,
And we’re trusting in His Word;
Tho’ He died upon the cross,
Yet He lives again today,
Glory, glory, hallelujah!
Men and angels say.

Glory, hallelujah!
Glory, hallelujah!
Shout, O shout the glad refrain!
Glory, hallelujah!
Glory, hallelujah!
Jesus lives again.
He lives again!

2. He has triumphed over darkness,
And ascended up on high;
Angel bands are shouting
Hallelujah thro’ the sky!
Let our voices join the chorus,
Sending back the glad refrain,
Glory, glory, hallelujah!
Jesus lives again! [Refrain]
