Representative Text

1 Out of the stillness, solemn and deep,
Over the garden, hushed for His sleep,
Tidings of triumph joyfully ring,
“Jesus is risen, Victor and King.”

“Victory, victory,” shout the glad story,
“Victory, victory,” loud let it ring,
“Victory, victory, triumph and glory,
Praise and dominion to our risen Lord and King.”

2 Out of the darkness, out of the gloom,
Where they have laid Him, low in the tomb,
Flashes the sunrise, seeming to say,
“Jesus is risen, Victor today.” [Refrain]

3 Out of the sorrow, trouble and woe,
Music shall echo, sunshine shall glow,
Easter’s glad message ever shall be,
“Jesus is risen, Victor is He.” [Refrain]
