392. That Easter Day with Joy Was Bright

1 That Easter day with joy was bright,
The sun shone out with fairer light,
Alleluia, alleluia!
When to their longing eyes restored,
The glad apostles saw their Lord.
Alleluia, alleluia, alleluia,
alleluia, alleluia!

2 His risen flesh with radiance glowed;
His wounded hands and feet he showed;
Alleluia, alleluia!
Those scars their solemn witness gave
That Christ was risen from the grave.
Alleluia, alleluia, alleluia,
alleluia, alleluia!

3 O Jesus, in your gentleness,
With constant love our hearts possess;
Alleluia, alleluia!
To you our lips will ever raise
The tribute of our grateful praise.
Alleluia, alleluia, alleluia,
alleluia, alleluia!

4 O Lord of all, with us abide
In this our joyful Easter-tide;
Alleluia, alleluia!
From ev'ry weapon death can wield
Your own redeemed for ever shield.
Alleluia, alleluia, alleluia,
alleluia, alleluia!

5 All praise to you, O risen Lord,
Now by both heav'n and earth adored;
Alleluia, alleluia!
To God the Father equal praise,
And Spirit blest our songs we raise.
Alleluia, alleluia, alleluia,
alleluia, alleluia!
