1 The day of resurrection!
Earth, tell it out abroad;
the Passover of gladness,
the Passover of God.
From death to life eternal,
from sin's dominion free,
our Christ has brought us over
with hymns of victory.
2 Our hearts be pure from evil,
that we may see aright
the Lord in rays eternal
of resurrection light;
and, listening to his accents,
may hear, so calm and plain,
his own "all hail" and, hearing,
may raise the victor strain.
3 Now let the heavens be joyful!
Let earth its song begin!
The world resound in triumph,
and all that is therein;
let all things seen and unseen
their notes of gladness blend;
for Christ the Lord has risen,
our Joy that has no end.
