Joy dawned again Easter Day,
The sun shone out with fairer ray, Alleluia!

When, to their longing eyes restored,
The apostles saw their risen Lord. Alleluia!

Jesus king of gentleness,
Do thou our in-most hearts possess; Alleluia!

And we to thee will ever raise
The tribute of our grateful praise; Alleluia!

All praise, O risen Lord, we give
to thee, who dead, again dost live, Alleluia!

From every weapon death can wield
Thine own redeemed, thy people shield. Alleluia!
