#135: The Day of Resurrection

(Part of a series singing through the hymnbook I grew up with: Great Hymns of the Faith)

1

The day of resurrection! Earth, tell it out abroad —

The Passover of gladness, The Passover of God!

From death to life eternal, From this world to the sky,

Our Christ hath brought us over With hymns of victory!

2

Our hearts be pure from evil, That we may see aright

The Lord in rays eternal Of resurrection light;

And, list’ning to His accents, May hear, so calm and plain,

His own “All hail!” and, hearing, May raise the victor-strain.

3

Now let the heav’ns be joyful, Let earth her song begin,

Let the round world keep triumph And all that is therein;

Let all things seen and unseen Their notes in gladness blend,

For Christ the Lord hath risen, Our Joy that hath no end!
