Lyrics

The Lord, the Lord is risen!
Exulting angels sing!
He’s left the grave’s dark prison,
And death has lost its sting.

Refrain

The Lord, the Lord is risen!
Exulting angels sing!
He’s left the grave’s dark prison,
And death has lost its sting.

No more shall men in anguish
His bleeding wounds survey,
No more disciples languish,
He comes! the Star of day.

Refrain

Bring flowers, sweetest flowers,
His pathway to adorn,
And hail the joyous hours
Of this fair Easter morn.
