Redcliff Edward J. Hopkins, 1863 (🔊 pdf nwc).

The rosy morn has robed the sky;
The Lord has risen with victory:
Let earth be glad, and raise the cry,
Alleluia.

The Prince of Life with death has striven,
To cleanse the earth His blood has given;
Has rent the veil, and opened Heaven:
Alleluia.

And he, dear Lord, that with Thee dies,
And fleshly passions crucifies,
In body, like to Thine, shall rise:
Alleluia.

O grant us then, with Thee to die,
To spurn earth’s fleeting vanity,
And love the things above the sky:
Alleluia.
