Lyrics

1.

Come, ye faithful, raise the strain

Of triumphant gladness;

God hath brought his Israel

Into joy from sadness;

Loosed from Pharoah's bitter yoke

Jacob's sons and daughters;

Led them with unmoistened foot

Through the Red Sea waters.

2.

‘Tis the spring of souls today;

Christ hath burst his prison,

And from three days' sleep in death

As a sun hath risen;

All the winter of our sins,

Long and dark is flying

From his light, to whom we give

Laud and praise undying.

3.

Now the queen of seasons bright

With the day of splendor,

With the royal feast of feasts

Comes its joy to render;

Comes to glad Jerusalem

Who with true affection

Welcomes in unwearied strains

Jesus' resurrection.

4.

Neither might the gates of death,

Nor the tomb's dark portal,

Nor the watchers, nor the seal

Hold thee as a mortal;

But today amidst the twelve

Thou didst stand, bestowing

That thy peace which evermore

Passeth human knowing.

5.

"Alleluia!" now we cry

To our King immortal,

Who, triumphant, burst the bars

Of the tomb's dark portal;

"Alleluia!" with the Son,

God the Father praising;

"Alleluia!" yet again

To the Spirit raising.
