…humbled Himself, and became obedient unto death, even the death of the cross. Wherefore God also hath highly exalted Him, and given Him a name which is above every name.@Philippians 2:8-9

Christ who left His home in glory,
And upon the cross was slain,
Now is ris’n! Oh, tell the story,
That the Savior lives again.

Refrain

Hail Him! Hail Him!
Tell the story!
Hail! all hail!
Jesus lives forevermore.

While the world in peace was sleeping,
Early on that Easter day,
Came the faithful women weeping,
But the stone was rolled away.

Refrain

Christ, our loving mediator,
Now with God for you and me
Intercedes, and our creator
Hears and answers every plea.
