Representative Text

1. Rejoice, the King is risen,
He lives today on high;
The grave no more a prison,
But the doorway to the sky.

Rejoice, rejoice,
Our praises we will sing;
Rejoice, rejoice,
In Christ the risen King.

2. The risen King stands longing
To meet us at God’s throne;
To Him we may go thronging,
Since angels moved the stone. [Refrain]

3. Dear Jesus, we are coming
Along the narrow way;
We’ll meet you in the morning
Of the resurrection day. [Refrain]
