Representative Text

1 The blessed Easter comes again,
The holy Sabbath dawning,
With anthems sweet we come to greet,
The Resurrection Morning.

Hail the day! hail the day!
Sing with joy and mirth;
Flowers fair, ev’rywhere,
Gladness fills the earth.
He is risen from the grave,
He is ris’n, the world to save,
Hail the day, hail the day,
Hail the Easter day!

2 We meet within the house of praise,
With flow’rs for its adorning,
And gladly sing, to Him, our King,
This Resurrection Morning. [Refrain]

3 As all the wonder of His love
Within our hearts is dawning,
We’ll live with care, that we may share
His Resurrection Morning. [Refrain]
