The day of resurrection!

Earth, tell it out abroad;

The Passover of gladness,

The Passover of God.

From death to life eternal,

From earth unto 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, listening to his accents,

May hear so calm and plain

His own "All hail," and, hearing,

May raise the victor strain.

Now let the heavens be joyful,

Let earth her song begin,

The round world keep high triumph,

And all that is therein;

Let all things seen and unseen

Their notes together blend,

For Christ the Lord is risen,

Our joy that hath no end.
