1 "The Lord is risen! risen, indeed!"
Your carols blithely sing!
To deck His church with garlands gay,
The choicest flow'rets bring.
2 Come sing His praises loud and high,
Ere yet appears the dawn--
The birth-day of our Christian hope!
The glorious Easter Morn.
3 For when the light of Easter dawned,
Victorious in the strife,
The Saviour burst the bands of death,
And won our endless life.
4 He rose, and took the sting from death,
Took from the grave its might;
He led the way from earth to heaven,
Through darkness into light.
5 "The Lord is risen." Let each voice
Sing carols glad and gay,
From morn till eve each heart repeat
"The Lord is risen to-day!"
