Bright is the beauteous light shining,
Past is the hour of repining,
Come, all your sorrows resigning,
For Christ is ris’n.


Light from the tomb, past is its gloom,
Darkness is fled, the day is breaking at last.
See from the grave, He comes to save,
Jesus is victor over sin and death.

Sorrow is turned into singing,
Joy bells their glad notes are ringing,
Hope in our hearts now is springing,
For Christ is ris’n.


See from the tomb light is breaking,
See all around life is waking,
Hope from the grave now be taking,
For Christ is ris’n.
