160. O Sons and Daughters, Let Us Sing

1 O sons and daughters, let us sing!
The King of heav'n, the glorious King,
o'er death today rose triumphing,
Alleluia! Alleluia!

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

3 An angel clad in white they see,
Who sat and spake unto the three,
"Your Lord doth go to Galilee,"
Alleluia! Alleluia!

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

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

Amen.
