Representative Text

1 The Lord is risen—thro’ the gloom
That darkens round the sacred tomb,
I hear angelic voices say,
We rolled the guarding stone away.

Refrain:
The Lord is risen, O my soul,
What waves of glory round thee roll;
No longer wilt thou drooping stay,
The Lord is risen, come away.

2 And forth He came, the Lord of all,
He cast aside Death’s icy thrall,
And by that wondrous victory,
He gave immortal life to thee. [Refrain]

3 The night is over, and the light
Of day’s sweet dawning groweth bright;
Behold thy Lord, thy Savior, King!
What joy to earth this day doth bring. [Refrain]
