Oh, Earth! throughout thy borders,
Redon thy fairest dress;
And everywhere, oh, Nature!
Throb with new happiness;
Once more to new creation
Awake, and death gainsay,

Refrain

For death is swallowed up of life,
And Christ is ris’n today!

Let peals of jubilation
Ring out in all the lands;
With hearts of deep elation
Let sea with sea clasp hands;
Let one supreme Te Deum
Roll round the world’s highway,

Refrain
