Come, ye saints, look here and wonder
See the place where Jesus lay:
He has burst His bands asunder;
He has borne our sins away;
Joyful tidings, joyful tidings,
Yes, the Lord has ris’n today,
Yes, the Lord has ris’n today!

Jesus triumphs! sing ye praises
By His death He overcame;
Thus the Lord His glory raises,
Thus He fills His foes with shame;
Sing ye praises, sing ye praises,
Praises to the victor’s name,
Praises to the victor’s name!

Jesus triumphs! countless legions
Come from Heav’n to meet their king;
Soon, in yonder blessèd regions,
They shall join His praise to sing:
Songs eternal, songs eternal,
Shall through Heav’n’s high arches ring,
Shall through Heav’n’s high arches ring!
