THIS JOYFUL EASTERTIDE


1 This joyful Eastertide,
Away with sin and sorrow!
For Christ, the Crucified,
Has sprung to life this morrow.

(Refrain)
If Christ, Who once was slain,
Had never burst His prison,
Our faith had been in vain;
But now is Christ arisen,
arisen, arisen, arisen.
2 As Victor in the strife
And knowing no surrender,
He comes to bring us life:
A risen life of splendor.

(Refrain)
If Christ, Who once was slain,
Had never burst His prison,
Our faith ahd been in vain;
But now is Christ arisen,
arisen, arisen, arisen.
3 In Adam all men died;
Then Jesus came to save us.
For He was crucified
And, dying, new life gave us.

(Refrain)
If Christ, Who once was slain,
Had never burst His prison,
Our faith ahd been in vain;
But now is Christ arisen,
arisen, arisen, arisen.
