173. The Conqueror of Death

1. Be glad! rejoice! Hope's golden light
Is rising with the dawn;
The gloom of death has taken flight,
Its terrors are withdrawn.

Behold the King, the glorious King,
The conqueror of death!
O make the whole creation ring!
The Lord has conquered death!

2. Be glad! rejoice! Behold the King!
Triumphant forth he comes,
The glory of his love to bring
Into our hearts and homes! [Chorus]

3. Both sin and death have heard their doom,
The stone is rolled away,
And shines a light within the tomb
Which dims the light of day. [Chorus]

4. Behold the King! The strife is o'er,
The Saviour lives again!
Be glad, and praise him more and more;
Rejoice, ye sons of men. [Chorus]
