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.

3 O 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.
Latin; Tr. JOHN MASON Neale, 1852.

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."

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.
