1 Across the eastern hilltops gleam
The first bright rays of dawn;
The sunlight dances in each beam,
Upon this Easter morn.
The Lord is risen today;
The Lord doth reign for aye.
2 The gates of death now stand ajar,
For Jesus, Lord and King,
No stone or seal His exit bar,
While men and angels sing: [Refrain]
3 Now all His agony is past,
His suffering and His pain,
With glorious victory at last,
Our Savior lives to reign. [Refrain]Source: The Cyber Hymnal #7915
