1 He is risen, he is risen!
Tell it with a joyful voice:
he has burst his three days' prison,
let the whole wide earth rejoice.
Death is conquered, we are free,
Christ has won the victory.
2 Come with high and holy gladness,
sing our Lord's triumphant song:
not one touch of twilight sadness
dims his resurrection morn;
brightly dawns the radiant east,
brighter far our Easter feast.
3 He is risen, he is risen!
he has opened heaven's gate:
we are free from sin's dark prison,
risen to a holier state;
soon a brighter Easter beam
on our longing eyes shall stream.
