Author: Jean Tisserand, d. 1494; John Mason Neale, 1818-1866 Hymnal: Catholic Book of Worship III #404 (1994) First Line: O sons and daughters, let us sing! Lyrics: Alleluia, alleluia, alleluia!
1 O sons and daughters, let us sing!
The king of heav'n, our glorious king,
From 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 clothed in white they see,
Who sat and spoke unto the three,
"Your Lord has gone to Galilee."
4 That night th'apostles met in fear;
And Christ did in their midst appear,
And said, "My peace be with you here."
5 When Thomas first the tidings heard,
How they had seen the risen Lord,
He doubted the disciples' word.
6 "My wounded side, O Thomas, see;
Behold my hands, my feet," said he,
"Not faithless, but believing be."
7 No longer Thomas then denied,
He saw the feet, the hands, the side;
"You are my Lord and God," he cried.
8 How blest are they who have not seen,
And yet whose faith has constant been,
For they eternal life shall win.
9 On this most holy day of days,
To God your hearts and voices raise,
In laud and jubilee and praise.
