Jesus Christ is risen today.
This is the day which the Lord hath made, we will rejoice and be glad in it.
For now is Christ risen from the dead, and become the first-fruits of them that slept.
Sing songs of praise, glad songs of praise
To Christ, th'Incarnate Word.
Sing songs of praise, glad songs of praise
To Christ, the risen Lord.
Sing songs to Him Who rose that we
Might rise to realms above,
Might rise with Him, might rise with Him,
Our God, Whose Name is Love.
Neither death, nor life, nor angels. nor principalities, nor powers, nor things present, nor things to come,
Nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature, shall be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.
This is the day...
