Lyrics

O angel fair of Easter dawn
Speed from thy home of glory;
With loving touch dispel the clouds,
And tell the joyful story.

Refrain

He lives! He lives!
The joyous bells are ringing;
He lives! He lives!
Earth’ voices glad are singing;
The angel fair of Easter dawn
Proclaims the wondrous story;
The Lord is ris’n!
Rejoice! rejoice! rejoice.

Breathe in our hearts a hope divine,
Till stepping from our prison
Our longing souls with rapture cry,
The Lord for us has risen!

Refrain

Our Jesus lives who once was dead,
Death’s gates are open swinging;
Thro’ all the world, O angel fair,
Thy message sweet is ringing.
