4 God has still His angels, helping at His word, And His faithful children, like their faithful
Lord; Soothing them in sorrow, arming them in
strife, Opening wide the tomb-doors, leading into
5 Father, send Thine angels unto us, we pray;
Leave us not to wander, all alone our way; Let them guard and guide us, wheresoe'er we
be, Till our resurrection brings us home to Thee.
Angels, sing His triumph, etc.
HE LIVĘS! My Lord has left the grave!
Let ev'ry mortal hear!
Ring out this note of cheer!
2 May friend to friend the message tell,
That soon will dawn the day When, overruling death and hell,
His kingdom shall hold sway.
3 To mortal man He doth impart
A life that never ends,
Both joy and comfort lends,
4 The night of death, so dark and drear,
To me seems terror-free;
Eternal light I see.
Leads up to mansions fair, Where He, the living son of God,
With us His home will share. 6 Nor should we mourn when those we love
Must leave their earthly home; For we shall meet them all above
In God's celestial dome.
Is with us on our way.
H. Brueckner, Tr.
Tell it with a joyful voice;
Let the whole wide world rejoice:
Christ has won the victory. 2 Tell it to the sinner, weeping
Over deeds in darkness done;
Brightly breaks their Easter sun;
3 Come, with high and holy gladness,
Chant our Lord's triumphal lay; Not one touch of twilight sadness
Dims His Resurrection Day; Brightly dawns the radiant East,
Brighter far our Easter Feast. 4 He is risen! He is risen!
Opened the eternal gate;
Risen to a holier state;
C. F. Alexander.
I KNOW that my Redeemer lives!
What comfort this sweet sentence gives ! He lives, He lives, who once was dead,
He lives, my ever-living Head.
He lives, eternally to save;
He lives, exalted there on high.
He lives, to plead for me above;
He lives, to help in time of need. 4 He lives, to grant me rich supply;
He lives, to guide me with His eye;
5 He lives, to silence all my fears;
He lives, to wipe away my tears;
6 He lives, my kind, wise, heav'nly Friend;
He lives and loves me to the end;
7 He lives, and grants me daily breath;
He lives, and I shall conquer death;
8 He lives, all glory to His name!
He lives, my Jesus, still the same;
Our triumphant holy day, Hallelujah!
2 Hymns of praise then let us sing, Hallelujah!
Unto Christ, our heavenly King, Hallelujah! Who endured the cross and grave, Hallelujah! Sinners to redeem and save, Hallelujah!
3 But the pains which He endured, Hallelujah!
Our salvation have procured, Hallelujah! Now above the sky He's King, Hallelujah! Where the angels ever sing, Hallelujah!
From the Latin. Lyra Davidica, Tr.
JESUS lives! no longer now
Can thy terrors, death, appall us; Jesus lives! by this we know
From the grave He will recall us. Brighter scenes will there commence! This shall be our confidence.
2 Jesus lives ! to Him the throne
High o'er heaven and earth is given; We shall go where He is gone,
Live and reign with Him in heaven. God is pledged; weak doubtings hence! This shall be our confidence.
3 Jesus lives! We know full well,
Naught from us His love shall sever;
Part us now from Christ forever.
4 Jesus lives! henceforth is death
But the gate of life immortal;
