Representative Text

1 The Lord, who late was dead,
Now lives; then haste away,
And through the world the tidings spread,
The Lord is ris’n today.

2 While foes are filled with fear;
His joyful friends may say,
What glorious news is this we hear?
The Lord is ris’n today.

3 His triumph is complete,
Let all His people say;
And let ten thousand tongues repeat,
The Lord is ris’n today.

4 Let all His people sing,
For well His people may;
The theme is sweet; of hope the spring,
The Lord is ris’n today.

5 On Him our souls rely,
Desponding thoughts away;
We know ’tis true, and sing with joy,
The Lord is ris’n today.

Kelly, Thomas, B.A., son of Thomas Kelly, a Judge of the Irish Court of Common Pleas, was born in Dublin, July 13, 1769, and educated at Trinity College, Dublin.

His earnest evangelical preaching in Dublin led Archbishop Fowler to inhibit him and his companion preacher, Rowland Hill, from preaching in the city. For some time he preached in two unconsecrated buildings in Dublin, Plunket Street, and the Bethesda, and then, having seceded from the Established Church, he erected places of worship at Athy, Portarlington, Wexford, &c, in which he conducted divine worship and preached.
