1 The happy morn is come,
Christ quits the grave;
Triumphant leaves the tomb,
With pow'r to save.

Jesus is risen! Jesus is risen!
Swiftly the glad message spread;
Jesus is risen; Jesus is risen,
Jesus is risen indeed.

2 Who now accuseth them
For whom Christ died;
Who now shall those condemn,
God justified. [Chorus]

3 Christ hath the ransom paid—
Our vict'ry won;
On Him our help is laid;
The work is done. [Chorus]
