1 See, the seal is rudely broken!
Lo! the stone is rolled away!
Kept is ev’ry sign and token;
“He is risen!” angels say.

Refrain:
“He is risen!”
“He is risen!”
See the place where Jesus lay!
Angels herald the glad tidings:
Christ, the Lord, arose today!

2 Lo! the tomb is standing open
And the Marys weeping near,
Angel tones within are spoken:
“He is risen, do not fear!” [Refrain]

3 Hark! the joyful tidings ringeth,
Christ hath triumphed o’er the grave!
Joy to all His foll’wers bringeth,
Christ hath risen!—lives to save! [Refrain]
