The Lord is risen indeed. Luke 24:34
Words: Appeared in Carols New and Carols Old, by Charles L. Hutchins (Boston, Massachusetts: Parish Choir, 1916), number 222. The song was annotated
From the [New York] Herald.
If you know the author, or where to get a good photo of him or Fairlamb,
Across the eastern hilltops gleam
The first bright rays of dawn;
The sunlight dances in each beam,
Upon this Easter morn.
The Lord is risen today;
The Lord doth reign for aye.
The gates of death now stand ajar,
For Jesus, Lord and King,
No stone or seal His exit bar,
While men and angels sing:
Now all His agony is past,
His suffering and His pain,
With glorious victory at last,
Our Savior lives to reign.
