THE Saviour risen to-day we praise
In concert with the blessed;
For now we see his work complete,
And enter into rest. 

On this first day a brighter scene
Of glory was displayed
By the creating word, than when 
The universe was made.

He rises who mankind has bought
With grief and pain extreme;
Twas great to speak the world from nought,
Twas greater to redeem.

How vain the stone, the watch, the seal;
Nought can forbid his rise;
Tis he who shuts the gates of hell
And opens paradise.
