1. It is a day of gladness,
This blessèd Easter morn,
O day of banished sadness,
The day when hope was born;
A time of great rejoicing,
When men and angels sing,
With loud hosannas voicing
The praise of Christ the King.

Refrain
Jesus is risen! O swell the refrain;
Jesus the Crucified liveth again!
Grave, thou art conquered;
O Death, thou art vain!
Jesus is risen, and liveth again!

2. With joy our voices raising,
We join the glad acclaim,
To tell His strength amazing,
And praise His matchless name;
For in the Easter’s breaking,
Long centuries ago,
The Son of God was waking
Triumphant o’er His foe. [Refrain]

3. O tell the Easter story,
How Jesus burst the tomb,
And pierced with shafts of glory
Our night of grief and gloom.
No more death’s sting shall harm us;
No more we fear the grave;
No more can sin alarm us;
The risen Christ doth save. [Refrain]

4. O souls that need salvation,
As far from Christ you stray,
Hear now His invitation,
Make this your Easter day;
The Christ is loudly crying,
Amid earth’s storm and strife,
To souls in trespass dying—
I bring abundant life. [Refrain]
