1 Yes, the Redeemer rose;
The Savior left the dead;
And o'er our hellish foes
High raised his conquering head:
In wild dismay
The guards around
Fall to the ground,
And sink away.

2 Lo! the angelic bands
In full assembly meet,
To wait his high commands,
And worship at his feet:
Joyful they come,
And wing their way
From realms of day
To Jesus' tomb.

3 Then back to Heaven thy fly,
The joyful news to bear:
Hark! as they soar on high,
What music fills the air!
Their anthems say,
"Jesus who bled
Hath left the dead;
He rose to-day.'

4 Ye mortals, catch the sound,
Redeemed by him from hell;
And send the echo round
The globe on which you dwell;
Transported cry,
"Jesus who bled
Hath left the dead
No more to die."

5 All hail triumphant Lord,
Who sav'st us with thy blood1
Wide be thy name adored
Thou rising, reigning Ged!
With thee we rise,
With thee we reign,
And empires gain
Beyond the skies.
