1 This joyful Easter-tide,
away with sin and sorrow!
My Love, the Crucified,
has sprung to life this morrow.

Had Christ, that once was slain,
ne'er burst his three-day prison,
our faith would be in vain;
but now has Christ arisen,
arisen, arisen, arisen!

2 My flesh in hope shall rest
and for a season slumber,
till trump from east to west
shall wake the dead in number. [Refrain]

3 Death's flood has lost its chill,
since Jesus crossed the river;
lover of souls, from ill
my passing soul deliver. [Refrain]
