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.
