2 That Easter morn, at break of day,

The faithful women went their way
To seek the tomb where Jesus lay.

Alleluia!
3 An angel clad in white they see,

Who sat, and spake unto the three, "Your Lord doth go to Galilee."

Alleluia!
4 That night the apostles met in fear;

Amidst them came their Lord most dear,
And said, “My peace be on all here."

Alleluial
5 When Thomas first the tidings heard.

How they had seen the risen Lord,
He doubted the disciples' word.

Alleluial
6. "My pierced hands, O Thomas, see;

My hands, My feet, I show to thee;
Not faithless, but believing be."

Alleluia!
7 No longer Thomas then denied,

He saw the feet, the hands, the side;
“Thou art my Lord and God,” he cried,

Alleluia!
8 How blest are they who have not seen,

And yet whose faith has constant been,
For they eternal life shall win.

Alleluial
9 On this most holy day of days,

To God your hearts and voices raise,
In laud, and jubilee, and praise.

Alleluial

2 His risen flesh with radiance glowed;

His wounded hands and feet He showed:
Those scars their silent witness gave

That Christ was risen from the grave.
30 Jesus, King of gentleness,

Do Thou our inmost hearts possess;
And we to Thee will ever raise

The tribute of our grateful praise.
4 Jesus, Who art the Lord of all,

In this our Easter festival,
From every weapon death can wield

Thine own redeemed, Thy people, shield.
5 All praise, O risen Lord, we give

To Thee, Who, dead, again dost live;
To God the Father equal praise,
And God the Holy Ghost, we raise. Amen.

2 In the dreadful desert, where the Lord was tried,

There the faithful angels gathered at His side;
And when in the garden, grief and pain and care
Bowed Him down with anguish, they were with Him there.

Angels, sing His triumph as you sang His birth,
“Christ the Lord is risen. Peace, good will on earth.”

3 Yet the Christ they honour is the same Christ still,

Who, in light and darkness, did His Father's will;
And the tomb deserted shineth like the sky,
Since He passed out from it into victory.

Angels, sing His triumph as you sang His birth,
“Christ the Lord is risen. Peace, good will on earth.”

ay.

4 God has still His angels, helping, at His word,

All His faithful children, like their faithful Lord;
Soothing them in sorrow, arming them in strife,
Opening wide the tomb-doors, leading into life.

Angels, sing His triumph as you sang His birth,
“Christ the Lord is risen. Peace, good will on earth.”

PHILLIPS BROOKS, 1877.
