116. O Sons and Daughters, Let Us Sing!

Refrain:
Alleluia! Alleluia! Alleluia! Alleluia!

1 O sons and daughters, let us sing!
The King of heaven, the glorious King,
O'er death and hell rose triumphing.
Alleluia! Alleluia!

2 That Easter morn, at break of day,
The faithful women went their way
To seek the tomb where Jesus lay.
Alleluia! Alleluia!

3 An angel clad in white they see,
Who sat, and spake unto the three,
“Your Lord goes on to Galilee.”
Alleluia! Alleluia!

4 That night the apostles met in fear;
Among them came their Lord most dear,
And said, “My peace be with you here.”
Alleluia! Alleluia!

5 On this most holy day of days,
To God your hearts and voices raise,
In laud and jubilee and praise.
Alleluia! Alleluia!
