Adam Geibel (1855–1933)


O day of resurrection,
Sing out the glad refrain!
And tell to every nation
That Christ has ris’n again.
No more shall powers of darkness
Hold sway o’er those who fall,
If they but rise, confess Him,
Proclaim Him Lord of all.


Then sing again, ye people,
Rejoice for­ev­er­more;
For Je­sus Christ is ris­en,
Our Sav­ior, King and Lord.

O day of resurrection,
We hail thy glad return,
And pray that God Eternal
Will make our hearts to burn.
We hearken to thy accents,
All times, so calm, so still,
And listening, hear the message
From God’s most Holy Hill.


O day of resurrection,
Let hearts with voices blend,
For Christ the Lord is ris­en,
Our hope that hath no end.
Sing to the lands in darkness
The resurrection light,
That they may have the gladness
Of vic­to­ry over night.
