Sing the resurrection song! Death and sorrow, earth’s dark story,
To the former days belong.
All that eye has yet perceived!
Holiest hearts for ages pleading,
Never that full joy conceived.
Jesus lives who once was dead; Join, O man, the deathless voices;
Child of God, lift us thy head!
See that glowing firmament,
Know with thee, O God immortal,
“Jesus Christ whom thou hast sent!”
