The Lord again to earth appears,
Our comforter in all our tears;
Who lately on the shameful tree
Died, wretched man from wrath to free.
The holy women spices brought,
And with the dawn their Savior sought;
To them the blessèd angels say:
Fear not, the Lord is risen today.
Bid His disciples weep no more:
This day doth Christ to them restore.
Lord, ours this paschal joy shall be;
Thanks to the blessèd Trinity.
