1 Have you heard the angels singing:
Christ is risen from the grave?
Have you heard the message ringing:
Jesus lives to help and save?

Refrain:
Jesus died, O wondrous love!
Jesus died, O wondrous love!
Rose again to bring us freedom,
Lives to plead our cause above.

2 Have you felt the love he bore you
When he fought for your release,
When he trod the way before you,
Opening thus the paths of peace?

3 Have your heard him interceding
With his Father for your sin,
Sorrow, self and shame unheeding
That his death your life might win?

4 Have you seen the sacred beauty
Shining from his suffering face,
Who, in love and not in duty,
Held our sorrows in embrace?

5 Will you bow your soul before him,
Will you cast on him your care,
By your sacrifice adore him
And as conqueror meet him there?
