The Lord is risen indeed. Luke 24:34
Words: Eliza E. Hewitt, in The Primary Sunday School Hymnal, edited by Rufus W. Miller (Philadelphia, Pennsylvania: Heidelberg Press, 1902).
If you know where to get a good photo of Marsh (head & shoulders, at least 200×300 pixels),
Buds and blossoms of the spring,
Bloom to praise the heav’nly King;
Let the joyful news be spread,
Christ is risen from the dead.
Ever living, loving Friend,
Now to Thee our songs ascend;
Make us pure in heart, that we
May the heav’nly vision see.
Empty now the Savior’s tomb,
Light is shining through the gloom;
He is living evermore
On the bright eternal shore.
Teach us Savior, day by day,
Walking with us by the way;
May our hearts within us burn,
While still more of Thee we learn.
