1. O joyous Easter morning,
That saw the Lord of love arise!
O bright and happy morning!
The clouds have left the skies.
The night of grief is ended,
The smiling day has come again,
And Christ has won the victory
For all the sons of men.

2. O gladsome Easter morning,
Our hearts rejoice anew today,
The grave and death are conquered,
He is of life the Way.
The hosts of sin are vanquished,
He is the Victor, Savior, King;
Then let us all with gladness,
Our thankful praises bring.

3. O blessèd Easter morning,
What day so bright and fair as this,
When, through His mighty triumph,
He won the courts of bliss!
The doors of heaven are open,
The grave no more has power or dread,
For risen is our Savior,
The firstfruits of the dead.
