Lyrics

Angel of Easter,
Speed down thro’ the night,
Hasten the dawn with
Its glorious light;
Roll back the shadows,
The stone from the tomb,
Let the bright sunshine
Its darkness illume.

Refrain

Come, bright Easter angel,
On wings of love;
Tell the tidings glad
Of hope from above;
Singing, hallelujah!
He lives on high!
Hail, hail, hail the Christ
Who will never die!

Refrain

Bid the sweet blossoms
Their fragrance to lend;
Songs of rejoicing
His footsteps attend;
Fetters are broken,
The bells sweetly chime,
Crown of the Victor
Greets glad Easter time.

Refrain

Angel of Easter,
So strong and so fair,
Give to the world the
Glad message you bear;
Lighten the pathway
The Victor has trod;
Earth thrills with joy at
The touch of our Lord.
