Representative Text

1 Hushed ev’ry bird that sings,
Hushed ev’ry note that swells;
In the still tomb He lies
Silent in death.

Refrain:
The bands of death are burst in twain,
And from the awful gloom
The risen Lord comes forth to reign,
Triumphant o’er the tomb.
Hallelujah!

2 Wrapped in the linen shrouds,
Wrapped in its awful night;
From the dark tomb He came,
Our glorious King. [Refrain]

3 Saved by His wondrous grace,
Cleansed in that crimson flow;
Risen with Christ in God
We too shall rise. [Refrain]

4 Sing, choirs of angels sing,
Sing ev’ry living thing;
Jesus is conqueror
O’er death and hell. [Refrain]
