Hail, East­er Day! glad with His love,
Bringing bright vi­sions of Heav­en above;
Sad hearts re­joice: Why do you weep?
Jesus our Sav­ior is on­ly asleep.
For us He suf­fered, the sin­less and pure,
Glad for our sakes bit­ter pain to en­dure.
Hail, East­er Day! forth from the grave
Rose the dear Je­sus, a lost world to save.

Hail, East­er Day! beau­ti­ful, bright,
Breaking in glory through earth’s drea­ry night;
Bells of the morn ring clear and strong,
Turning our si­lence to ju­bi­lant song.
Waken from slum­ber! O, crown Him the King!
From the dark tomb peace and life doth He bring.
Hail, East­er Day! in­cense most sweet
Gladly His child­ren lay down at His feet.

Hail, East­er Day! Vic­tor is He,
Broken the pow­er of death now shall be;
Angels of light, joy­ful pro­claim
Glory and hono­r and praise to His name.
Jesus has ris­en, He reigns ev­er­more;
Happy and free, our blest Lord we adore.
Hail, East­er Day! life’s wel­come spring,
Jesus, the migh­ty, our Je­sus is King!
