And, listening to His accents,
May hear, so calm and plain,
May raise the victor strain ! 3 Now let the heavens be joyful !
Let earth her song begin!
And all that is therein:
Their notes let all things blend;
St.John Damascene. 3. M. Neale. (tr.)
1 HE is risen, He is risen !
Tell it with a joyful voice;
Let the whole wide earth rejoice :
Christ hath won the victory.
With glad smile and radiant brow :
All His woes are over now,
Sin and pain can vex no more.
Chant our Lord's triumphal lay ;
Not one touch of twilight sadness
Dims yon glorious morning ray,
4 He is risen, He is risen!
He hath ope'd the eternal gate :
Risen to a holier state;
On our longing eyes shall stream. 5 Three in One, let all adore Thee,
Saints on earth and saints in heaven;
Who hast all their being given ;
1 COME see the place where Jesus lay;
Believe, and cast thy fears away :
3 O come, let us together sing,
The triumph of our heavenly King:
A. T. Russell. First Sunday after Easter.
Christ has broken every chain !
Hallelujah! 3 He who bore all pain and loss
Comfortless upon the Cross
Hallelujah! 4 He who slumbered in the grave
Is exalted now to save;
Hallelujah! 5 Now He bids us tell abroad
How the lost may be restored,
Hallelujah! 6 Thou, our Paschal Lamb indeed,
Christ, to-day Thy people feed;
JESUS lives! no longer now
Can thy terrors, Death, appal us;
2 Jesus lives! henceforth is death
But the gate of life immortal ;
3 Jesus lives! for us He died ;
Then, alone to Jesus living,
4 Jesus lives ! our hearts know well
Nought from us His love shall sever ;
Hallelujah! 5 Jesus lives ! to Him the Throne
Far above all power is given ;
6 Praise the Father, praise the Son,
Who to us new life hath given :
115. 1 COME, and let us drink of that New River,
Not from barren rock divinely poured,
From the sepulchre of Christ the Lord.
2 All the world hath bright illumination,Heaven, and earth, and things beneath the
Christ hath risen, who gave creation birth.
3 Yesterday with Thee in burial lying,
Now to-day with Thee arisen I rise ;
