|O glorious day when Christ arose
With victory o'er the grave,
The mighty Conqueror of death,
With grace and power to save!
No Roman seal or stone-closed tomb
Could bind His soul within,
For here He conquered death and Hell
To save us from our sin.
Had it not been for this event -
His death and opened tomb -
Our hopes would vanish in the night
To one eternal doom.
But praise the Lord for this great day!
Let's hail the victory
Of Him who broke the bars of death,
From sin to set men free.
