1 From the grave He came victorious,
Our Redeemer King all-glorious!
Death had no pow’r to hold its prey,
For angels rolled the stone away.

He lives, our mighty Head,
He lives, who once was dead!
He lives, our birthright to restore,
He lives forevermore.

2 Roman seal and guard no longer
Could defy, for He was stronger;
The whole earth trembled at the pow’r
Divinely bro’t to bear the hour. [Refrain]

3 Death was conquered once forever!
We shall fear it henceforth never!
A light is shining ‘mid the gloom
To guide us safely thro’ the tomb. [Refrain]
