Easter Hymn

(to the air of ‘While Shepherds watched)


On this Easter Sunday morn,

let our glad voices sing

a hymn of praise to Christ the Lord,

our Saviour and our King


To share good news with humankind.

He came down from on high.

The Shepherd’s flock rejected Him

and sent Him out to die.


On that wondrous Sunday morn,

God raised Him from the grave

to open Heaven’s gates once more

and humankind to save.


The Magdalen went to His tomb

ere dawn on Easter day,

but found there just an empty cave

the stone was rolled away


She thought it was a gardener

standing there close by,

but when she saw the risen Lord,

her heart was filled with joy.


Though countless generations pass,

the joyous tale lives on,

that God hath loved the world so much.

He sent His only Son


And we shall see them face to face

one day in Paradise

and to the throne of God most high,

our song of praise shall rise.


“Give glory to the Father now,

the Son and Holy Ghost,”

shalt be the everlasting hymn

of all the heavenly host.
