Good Christian friends, rejoice and sing!
Now is the triumph of our king!
To all the world glad news we bring:
The Lord of life is risen this day;
death’s mighty stone is rolled away;
let all the earth rejoice and say:
Praise we in songs of victory
that love, that life which cannot die,
and sing with hearts uplifted high:
Your name we bless, O risen Lord,
and sing today with one accord,
the life laid down, the life restored;
~ Cyril A. Alington
