Opening Hymn

1 This joyful Eastertide,
away with sin and sorrow!
My Love, the Crucified,
has sprung to life this morrow:

Refrain:
Had Christ, that once was slain,
ne’er burst His three-day prison,
our faith had been in vain;
but now has Christ arisen,
arisen, arisen;
but now has Christ arisen!

2 My flesh in hope shall rest
and for a season slumber:
till trump from east to west
shall wake the dead in number: [Refrain]

3 Death’s flood has lost its chill
since Jesus crossed the river;
Lover of souls, from ill
my passing soul deliver: [Refrain]

Offertory Hymn

1 Ye choirs of new Jerusalem,
Your sweetest notes employ,
The paschal victory to hymn
In strains of holy joy.

2 How Judah’s Lion burst his chains
And crushed the serpent’s head;
And brought with him, from death’s domains,

The long imprisoned dead.

3 From hell’s devouring jaws the prey

Alone our Leader bore;

His ransomed hosts pursue their way

Where he hath gone before.

4 Triumphant in his glory now

His sceptre ruleth all,

Earth, heaven, and hell before him bow,

And at his footstool fall.

5 While joyful thus his praise we sing,

His mercy we implore,

Into his palace bright to bring

And keep us evermore.

6 All glory to the Father be,
All glory to the Son,
All glory, Holy Ghost, to thee,
While endless ages run.

 

Final Hymn

1 Now the green blade riseth, from the buried grain,
Wheat that in dark earth many days has lain;
Love lives again, that with the dead has been:
Love is come again like wheat that springeth green.

2 In the grave they laid Him, Love whom men had slain,
Thinking that He never would awake again,
Laid in the earth like grain that sleeps unseen:
Love is come again like wheat that springeth green.

3 Forth He came at Easter, like the risen grain,
Jesus who for three days in the grave had lain;
Quick from the dead, my Risen Lord is seen:
Love is come again like wheat that springeth green.

4 When our hearts are wintry, grieving, or in pain,
Jesus’ touch can call us back to life again,
Fields of our hearts, that dead and bare have been:
Love is come again like wheat that springeth green.
