     1 And when the sabbath was past, Mary Magdalene, and Mary the mother of James, and Salome, had bought sweet spices, that they might come and anoint him. 2 And very early in the morning the first day of the week, they came unto the sepulchre at the rising of the sun. 3 And they said among themselves, Who shall roll us away the stone from the door of the sepulchre? 4 And when they looked, they saw that the stone was rolled away: for it was very great. 5 And entering into the sepulchre, they saw a young man sitting on the right side, clothed in a long white garment; and they were affrighted. 6 And he saith unto them, Be not affrighted: Ye seek Jesus of Nazareth, which was crucified: he is risen; he is not here: behold the place where they laid him. 7 But go your way, tell his disciples and Peter that he goeth before you into Galilee: there shall ye see him, as he said unto you. 8 And they went out quickly, and fled from the sepulchre; for they trembled and were amazed: neither said they any thing to any man; for they were afraid.(KJV)

1. Christ the Lord is risen again! 
Christ has broken death’s strong chain! 
Hark, the angels shout for joy 
Singing evermore on high: 

2. He who gave for us His life. 
Who for us endured the strife, 
Is our Paschal Lamb today. 
We, too, sing for joy and say: 

3. He who bore all pain and loss 
Comfortless upon the cross 
Lives in glory now on high, 
Pleads for us and hears our cry: 

4. He whose path no records tell 
Hath descended into hell; 
He the strong man armed hath bound 
And in highest heaven is crowned. 

5. He who slumbered in the grave 
Is exalted now to save; 
Now through Christendom it rings 
That the Lamb is King of kings. 

6. Now He bids us tell abroad 
How the lost may be restored, 
How the penitent forgiven, 
How we, too, may enter heaven. 

7. Thou our Paschal Lamb indeed, 
Christ, today Thy people feed; 
Take our sins and guilt away 
That we all may sing for aye:
