1. Jesus is risen! peal out the story,
Chime all ye bells, let the tidings ring;
Sing ye glad voices, hail Him the Victor,
Death He hath vanquished, all hail to the King.

Jesus is risen! peal out the story,
Send the glad news over land and sea;
Jesus is risen, triumphant, almighty,
Join in the song of the great jubilee.

2. Jesus is risen! once more He liveth,
Hail to our Savior, Redeemer and Lord;
Our Intercessor, ever and ever,
O’er us He keepeth love’s watch and ward. [Refrain]

3. Jesus is risen! chime out triumphant,
Glad bells of Easter the glorious strain,
Out of death’s darkness into God’s glory,
Jesus is risen, almighty to reign. [Refrain]
