733. This Joyful Eastertide

1 This joyful Eastertide
Away with sin and sorrow!
My love, the Crucified,
Has sprung to life this morrow.

Refrain:
Had Christ, who once was slain,
Not burst His three-day prison,
Our faith had been in vain:
But now is Christ arisen,
arisen, arisen;
But now is Christ arisen.

2 Death's flood has lost its chill
Since Jesus crossed the river;
Lover of souls, from ill
My passing soul deliver. [Refrain]

3 My flesh in hope shall rest
And for a season slumber
Till trump from east to west
Shall wake the dead in number. [Refrain]
