Hail, thou glorious Easter morning,
Day of joy beyond compare;
Angels hailed thy glorious dawning,
Found the stone no longer there.

Refrain

Shout aloud, O earth and Heaven,
Angels join the glad refrain,
Christ for man Himself has given,
Christ has died, but lives again.

Found the grave no longer bound Him,
Found death’s victory was o’er;
Christ, new glory shining round Him,
Reigns in Heav’n forevermore.

Refrain

All ye nations now adore Him,
Cast your offering at His feet,
Bring sweet flowers today before Him,
And glad hymns of joy repeat.
