The Lord is ris’n indeed! Hallelujah!
Now is Christ risen from the dead, and become the first fruits of them that slept.
And did He rise?
Hear, O ye nations, hear it, O ye dead!
He rose, He burst the bars of death,
And triumphed o’er the grave.
Then I rose!
Then first humanity triumphant passed the crystal ports of light,
And seized eternal youth.
Man, all immortal, hail!
Heaven, all lavish of strange gifts to man,
Thine all the glory,
Man’s the boundless bliss.
