Charles H. Gabriel (1856–1932)


There’s a vi­sion of an­gels,
A stone rolled away,
A song full of won­drous de­light;
There’s a mes­sage of glad­ness,
A word of good cheer,
A glo­ry that gleams thro’ earth’s drear night.


There’s a mes­sage of glad­ness, O tell it again,
Till hearts shall re­joic­ing­ly sing,
In tune to the mu­sic that ech­oes afar,
All praise to the con­quer­ing King!

With the spring­time of beau­ty
Our Lord doth arise,
In souls that have vic­to­ry won;
Blooms the cross with bright blos­soms,
The flow­ers of hope,
For life thro’ the Sav­ior just be­gun.


We can pass thro’ the sha­dows
Where Je­sus has trod,
His light shall il­lum­ine each way;
Hail to Him who is reign­ing,
By an­gels adored,
The Lord of our bless­èd East­er day.
