Easter Anthem


Young's Night Thoughts; 4th Night


The Lord is risen indeed! Hallelujah!

(Repeat previous line)!

Now is Christ risen from the dead,

And become the first fruit of them that slept.

(Repeat previous 2 lines).


Hallelujah, hallelujah, hallelujah.

And did he rise? And did he rise? Did he rise?

Hear it, ye nations! hear it O ye dead!

He rose, he rose, he rose, he rose,

He burst the bars of death,

(Repeat previous line twice).

And triumphed o'er the grave.


Then, then, then I rose,

Then I rose, then I rose,

Then first humanity triumphant

Past the crystal ports of light,

And seized eternal youth.

Men all immortal hail, hail, heaven,

All lavish of strange gifts to man,

Thine's all the glory, man's the boundless bliss.
