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