Representative Text

The Gloom is past, a Glory lights the sky;
The Easter dawns, the sun is rising high.
The Saviour lives, hath won the victory;
‘Tis thus we pass from Gloom to Glory.
O Glory-lighted blessed Easter day
We hail thy dawn with songs of joy,
O Glory-lighted blessed Easter day
Thy praise shall e’er our tongue employ.

Love’s redeeming work is done,
Fought the fight, the vict’ry won:
Jesus’ agony is o’er,
Darkness veils the earth no more.
Vain the stone, the watch, the seal,
Christ hath burst the gates of hell;
Death in vain forbids Him rise,
Christ hath opened Paradise.
Death in vain forbids Him rise,
Christ hath opened Paradise. [Refrain]
