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!
