1 He lives; proclaim the tidings;
Bid back the clouds of gloom;
Dismiss all doubts and chidings;
The Lord has left the tomb.

Send forth the proclamation;
Light breaks upon the grave;
Accept the full salvation;
He lies, He lives to save.

2 He lives; O tell the story
To each and every one!
The Lord of life and glory
Has perfect victory won. [Refrain]

3 He lives; for ever risen,
Triumphantly He reigns;
He opens now sin’s prison,
And breaks the captive’s chain. [Refrain]
