Lyrics

That Easter day with joy was bright;
the sun shone out with fairer light
when, to their longing eyes restored,
the apostles saw their risen Lord.
His risen flesh with radiance glowed;
his wounded hands and feet he showed;
those scars their solemn witness gave
that Christ was risen from the grave.
O Jesus, strong in gentleness,
come now yourself, our hearts possess,
that we may give thee all our days
the tribute of our grateful praise.
Come, risen Christ, with us abide
in this our joyful Eastertide;
your own redeemed forever shield
from every weapon death can wield.
