The happy morn is come, Triumphant over the grave

Representative Text

1. The happy morn is come!
Triumphant o’er the grave,
The Lord hath left the tomb
Omnipotent to save.

Captivity is captive led;
For Jesus liveth that was dead.

2. Who now accuseth them
For whom their Surety died?
Who now shall those condemn
Whom God hath justified? [Refrain]

3. Christ hath the ransom paid;
The glorious work is done;
Oh Him our help is laid;
By Him our victory won. [Refrain]

4. Hail, the triumphant Lord!
Thy resurrection Thou!
We bless Thy sacred Word;
Before Thy throne we bow. [Refrain]
