Jesus is risen! Lift up your glad voices!
Night’s dreary shadows are vanished away;
Hark, at the tidings the wide earth rejoices!
Jesus is risen, is risen today!

Death’s iron bondage His strong hands have broken;
Come, speaks the angel, behold where He lay!
Faithful the promise His own lips have spoken;
Jesus is risen, is risen today!

Fair by His open grave blossoms the garden;
Life follows death, bloom is born of decay,
Song after sorrow, and peace after pardon:
Jesus is risen, is risen today!

Light dawns in darkness, and comfort in sadness,
Death shall no longer our spirits dismay;
Tears turn to praises, and griefs change to gladness,
Jesus is risen, is risen today!
