1 We’re happy, dear Savior, and shall we not sing,
A song of thanksgiving to Jesus our king?
We sought for His presence thro’ sorrow’s dark way,
And angels of glory the stone rolled away.

Refrain:
We’re happy in Jesus, we’re happy today,
For angels of glory the stone rolled away.

2 The grave could not hold Him, on pinions of love
The bright seraphs bore Him in triumph above;
A conquering Savior Heav’n crowned Him that day,
For angels of glory the stone rolled way. [Refrain]

3 Rejoicing in Jesus, our union is sweet;
As heirs of His kingdom each other we greet;
Together we love Him, together we pray,
For angels of glory the stone rolled away. [Refrain]

4 We’ll sing of salvation through Jesus the Lamb,
’Till we on Mount Zion before Him shall stand;
Forever with Jesus, forever to stay,
For angels of glory the stone rolled away. [Refrain]
