1 O sons an earths, let us sing!
The King of heaven, 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 That night the apostles met in fear;
amidst them came their Lord most dear,
and said, “My peace be on all here.”
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!

6 When Thomas first the tidings heard,
how they had seen the risen Lord,
he doubted the disciples’ word.
Alleluia! Alleluia!

7 “My pierced side, O Thomas, see;
my hands, my feet, I show to thee;
not faithless but believing be.”
Alleluia! Alleluia!

8 No longer Thomas then denied;
he saw the feet, the hands, the side;
“Thou art my Lord and God,” he cried.
Alleluia! Alleluia!

9 How blest are they who have not seen,
and yet whose faith hath constant been,
for they eternal life shall win.
Alleluia! Alleluia!
