He is Risen! He is Risen Indeed!

Lift your glad voices in triumph on high,

For Jesus hath risen, and man cannot die;

Vain were the terrors that gathered around Him,

And short the dominion of death and the grave;

He burst from the fetters of darkness that bound Him,

Resplendent in glory to live and to save!

Loud was the chorus of angels on high,

The Savior hath risen, and man shall not die.

Glory to God, in full anthems of joy;

The being He gave us death cannot destroy:

Sad were the life we must part with tomorrow,

If tears were our birthright, and death were our end;

But Jesus hath cheered the dark valley of sorrow,

And bade us, immortal, to Heaven ascend:

Lift then your voices in triumph on high,

For Jesus hath risen, and man shall not die.

Through clouds of darkness drear the sunshine bright doth flow;

The hand once pierced for me has gained a victory,

My blessèd Savior rose today.


The Christ arose today, the Lord divine,

The tomb with glory-light doth shine;

Lift up your hearts and sing to Christ, the victor king,

The blessèd One who lives for aye.

Earth robed in fairest green blooms forth the Lord to greet;

The lilies pure and white bend low to touch His feet;

A song of gladness pours from morn’s unfolding doors,

The blessèd Savior rose today.


Oh, shout, ye starry choirs, let hallelujahs ring;

He lives to die no more, our prophet, priest and king;

Enthroned in glory bright, to Heav’n’s eternal light,

The blessèd Savior rose today.
