This joyful Eastertide

This joyful eastertide
away with sin and sadness!
our Lord, the Crucified,
has filled our hearts with gladness:

Had Christ, who once was slain,
not burst his three-day prison
our faith would be in vain-
but now is Christ arisen,
arisen, arisen, arisen!

2. My being shall rejoice
secure within God’s keeping,
until the trumpet voice
shall wake us from our sleeping:

3. Death’s waters lost their chill
when Jesus crossed the river;
his love shall reach me still,
his mercy is for ever:
