Representative Text

1 Hark! the angels bright are singing
In the glorious Easter sky:
Jesus from the grave has risen,
Jesus now no more may die.

Alleluia! Alleluia!
This is what the angels say;
Alleluia! Alleluia!
We will sing with them today.

2 Pilate’s soldiers tried to keep
Jesus fast within the grave;
And they put a seal and stone
Upon the entrance to the cave. [Refrain]

3 But when three days passed away,
At the awful midnight hour,
Jesus rose all gloriously
By His own almighty power. [Refrain]

4 We must die as Jesus died,
But we, too, from death shall rise;
Then with Him, if we are good,
We shall reign beyond the skies. [Refrain]
