Day when Heav’n and earth unite in songs of gladness,
Triumph telling, o’er the tomb;
Day when mourning ones can banish all their sadness,
Songs upswelling, where was gloom.

Refrain

Let us sing for joy, sing for joy,
On this happy day;
Christ is risen from the dead,
He is risen as He said;
Let us sing for joy, sing for joy,
And His voice obey,
Who the hosts of light to victory has led.

Day when from the tomb the Christ arose in glory,
As was breaking morning light,
Day when angels tell to men the wondrous story,
Hope awaking by His might.

Refrain

Day when earth may banish all its cares and sadness,
And upraising songs of joy,
Send abroad to all the world the Easter gladness,
Ever praising—best employ.
