Title: Angel Voices Sweetly Singing
Composer: Hermann Kotzschmar
Original text and translations
1. Christ is risen, all triumphant,
He has risen from the tomb!
Angel voices sweetly singing
Banish all our earthly gloom:
Join the glad song, all ye nations
Of his great redeeming love,
Calvary alone could save us
Christ is smiling from above.
2. He has risen, He is pleading
For each poor and struggling one;
Blessed day we hail that dawning,
Hope shall gild thy rising sun!
While on earth, reviled, rejected,
Gain he counted but as loss,
Hallelujah! he has risen,
And we bow before the cross.
3. Ring, glad bells your loudest anthems!
Sounding joy o’ver all the earth:
Crown the altar now with garlands,
Let us bow before his worth!
Christ is risen! joy excelling,
All our sorrows flee away,
And our hearts with joy are beating
On this blessed Easter day.
4. Let the glad songs now ascending
Sing our dear Redeemer’s name;
Christ has risen! Christ has risen!
All our hope is in the same;
Blessed day that banished darkness,
At the cross we bow in love,
Knowing that a risen Saviour
Smiles all sweetly from above.
