Why do you seek the living among the dead? He is not here, but is risen.@Luke 24:6

Hear the chiming Easter bells,
Their joyous music ringing;
Hear the children’s happy voices,
Easter carols singing.


Ringing, ringing, singing, singing,
Easter bells and happy voices;
Christ arose on Easter day,
And all the world rejoices,
And all the world rejoices.

Angels came from Heav’n above
To tell the wondrous story:
Christ is risen from the dead,
The Lord of life and glory.


Seek Him not among the dead,
The grave is not His prison;
Go and His disciples tell,
That Christ the Lord is risen.


Christ the Lord is ris’n today,
Salvation to us bringing;
Easter bells, ring out your chimes,
While voices glad are singing.
