The Resurrection
Carl H. Bloch (1834–1890)

O bless­èd day when from the tomb,
The Son of Man in tri­umph rose!
Where dark­ness reigned, now shines the light
Of hope eter­nal, pure and bright.


O bless­èd day, when I shall see
The ris­en Christ, who died for me,
And on that bright and peace­ful shore
Rest in His love for­ev­er­more!

O bless­èd day, when on the way
With His dis­ci­ples Je­sus walked!
Their sad­dened hearts with­in them burned
As to the Scrip­tures Je­sus turned.


O bless­èd day, in Be­tha­ny
When Christ as­cend­ed to His home!
Redemption’s won­drous work is done,
And lo, the Com­fort­er has come!


Thrice bless­èd day, when Je­sus comes
To take His ran­somed child­ren home;
Ye saints of God, arise and sing
Hosannas to your Sav­ior king!
