We Welcome Glad Easter

Representative Text

1 We welcome glad Easter when Jesus arose,
and won a great victory over His foes.
Then raise your glad voices, all Christians, and sing,
bring glad Easter praises to Jesus, your King.

2 We tell how the women came early that day,
and there at the tomb found the stone rolled away.
Then raise your glad voices, all Christians, and sing,
bring glad Easter praises to Jesus, your King.

3 We sing of the angel who said: "Do not fear!
Your Savior is risen, and He is not here."
Then raise your glad voices, all Christians, and sing,
bring glad Easter praises to Jesus, your King.

4 We think of the promise which Jesus did give:
"That he who believes in Me also shall live!"
Then raise your glad voices, all Christians, and sing,
bring glad Easter praises to Jesus, your King.
