89. O Sons and Daughters, Let Us Sing

Alleluia! Alleluia! Alleluia!

1. O sons and daughters, let us sing!
The king of heaven, the glorious king,
O'er death today rose triumphing.

2. That Easter morn at break of day,
The faithful women went their way
To seek the tomb where Jesus lay.

3. An angel white-robed they did see,
Who sat and spake unto the three,
"Your Lord doth go to Galilee."

4. How blest are they who have not seen,
And yet whose faith hath constant been;
For they eternal life shall win.

5. On this most holy day of days,
Our hearts and voices, Lord, we raise
To thee, in jubilee and praise.
