Rejoice, my friend, now see the empty tomb!
Eternal life has put an end to doom!
Sing praise! The resurrected Christ now lives!
Unchain the bonds of death, the fear it gives!
Rise from your knees, here is our risen Lord!
Realize His broken body’s now restored!
Ensnared no more by anguish and decay,
Christ Jesus is alive this Easter day!
This risen Savior took on all our sins,
Immersed them in His blood, now life begins!
O friend, see how our Lord has conquered death!
No need to fear your final earthly breath!
God raised him from the dead,
freeing him from the agony of death,
because it was impossible for death to keep its hold on him.
