1 Christ, the Son of God, once wounded—
Given up to die;
Hath from out the tomb arisen
Man to justify.
Tell the news! the world’s Redeemer
Vanquished Satan’s sway;
Robbed the grave of all its darkness,
Took death’s sting away.
Tell the news, tell the news,
Tell the news the world’s Redeemer
Vanquished Satan’s sway.
2 For the resurrection story—
Joy, all joys above!
We adore Thee, Lord of glory—
For such wondrous love. [Refrain]
3 Come again, Thou Mighty Victor!
Hasten, Lord and come!
Let our hearts with rapture greet Thee
With the Conq’ror’s song. [Refrain]
