     1 The wilderness and the solitary place shall be glad for them; and the desert shall rejoice, and blossom as the rose. 2 It shall blossom abundantly, and rejoice even with joy and singing: the glory of Lebanon shall be given unto it, the excellency of Carmel and Sharon, they shall see the glory of the LORD, and the excellency of our God. 3 Strengthen ye the weak hands, and confirm the feeble knees. 4 Say to them that are of a fearful heart, Be strong, fear not: behold, your God will come with vengeance, even God with a recompense; he will come and save you.

     5 Then the eyes of the blind shall be opened, and the ears of the deaf shall be unstopped. 6 Then shall the lame man leap as an hart, and the tongue of the dumb sing: for in the wilderness shall waters break out, and streams in the desert. 7 And the parched ground shall become a pool, and the thirsty land springs of water: in the habitation of dragons, where each lay, shall be grass with reeds and rushes. 8 And an highway shall be there, and a way, and it shall be called The way of holiness; the unclean shall not pass over it; but it shall be for those: the wayfaring men, though fools, shall not err therein. 9 No lion shall be there, nor any ravenous beast shall go up thereon, it shall not be found there; but the redeemed shall walk there: 10 And the ransomed of the LORD shall return, and come to Zion with songs and everlasting joy upon their heads: they shall obtain joy and gladness, and sorrow and sighing shall flee away.(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:
