Angels, roll the rock away;
Death, yield up thy mighty prey:
See! He rises from the tomb
Glowing with immortal bloom.
'Tis the Saviour; seraphs, raise
Your triumphant shouts of praise;
Let the earth's remotest bound
Hear the joy-inspiring sound.
Lift, ye saints, lift up your eyes;
Now to glory see Him rise;
Hosts of angels on the road
Hail and sing th'incarnate God.
