He Rose Triumphantly

Our blessed Lord was slain, the Christ who came to
reign, and in a grave he lay, to wait the coming day.

He rose triumphantly, in power and majesty,
the Saviour rose no more to die;
O let us now proclaim the glory of his name,
and tell to all, he lives today!

They sorrowed when He died, Nor sought the tears to hide
But soon their bitter pain was turned to joy again

The stone was rolled away, For Christ was raised that day
And now He lives above to manifest His love
