1 Under an eastern sky,
Upon a cross of wood,
They lifted up to die
Jesus, my Saviour.

Refrain:
Jesus, my Saviour, is living again!
Over the earth sing the sweet refrain;
Tell it to all men both near and far;
Jesus, my Saviour, is living again!

2 Bearing the world’s dark stain
Upon His sinless soul,
Salvation free to gain,
Jesus, my Saviour. [Refrain]

3 They laid His form away,
They sealed the heavy stone;
He woke at break of day—
Jesus, my Saviour. [Refrain]

4 He came forth from the grave
Triumphant over death;
All pow’rful now to save—
Jesus, my Saviour. [Refrain]

5 Unto His pierced feet
He now draws all mankind;
Shall I His love defeat?
Jesus, my Saviour. [Refrain]
