Representative Text

1 Hail, oh hail the joyous Easter,
Herald of spring;
Blossoms now awaking
Sweetest mem’ries bring.
Hail, oh hail the blessed Saviour,
Victor o’er death;
We will love and serve Him
Till our latest breath.

Refrain:
Hail the joyous Easter,
For the Christ now is King!
Songs of joy and gladness
Evermore shall ring.
Pass along the message,
Ev’ry sorrow shall cease,
Thro’ His life He gives to all
Eternal peace.

2 Hail, oh hail the joyous Easter,
Sweet day of peace;
Gladness over all is ruling,
Sorrows cease.
Life to all today is given—
Beautiful thought;
Christ the mighty Saviour
Full salvation brought. [Refrain]

3 Hail, oh hail the joyous Easter,
Jesus is here,
Nevermore to leave us,
Death can bring no fear.
He will safely lead us over
Life’s rugged way,
To the land where cometh
Naught but perfect day. [Refrain]
