(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.
