1 This is for us a happy day,
Come let us join to sing and pray?
And him our blessed Lord adore,
Who lives and reigns for evermore.
2 Glad hallalujahs let us sing,
To Jesus our great Lord and King/1
In spite of all that did oppose,
He rose and conquer'd all his foes.
3 The Cross, the Nail and bloody Spear,
He never more shall need to fear;
His death distroy'd the powers of death,
And all the force of Hell beneath.
4 The happy news the angels bought,
To those who Jesus early sought;
It is to us the very same,
With them we join to praise his name.
5 As Jesus from the grave did rise,
So shall we too be rais'd likewise;
Our bodies raised from the tomb,
Will fit them for the life to come.
6 There like bless'd Angels we shall be,
With them the face of Jesus see:
We shall enjoy him as he is,
In full fruition life and peace.Source: Church Hymn Book: consisting of newly composed hymns with the addition of hymns and psalms, from other authors, carefully adapted for the use of public worship, and many other occasions (1st ed.) #LXXV
