The earth was fill'd with peace and light,
When Christ arose;
The heavens trembled at the sight,
When Christ arose;

The sea rejoic'd along the sands,
The verdant valleys clapp'd their hands,
The mountains sang and all the lands,
When Christ arose.

The tomb was empty where He lay,
When Christ arose;
The angels roll'd the stone away,
When Christ arose;

A shout of triumph fill'd the air,
The glorious tidings to declare,
And there was gladness ev'rywhere,
When Christ arose.

The soul of man was born anew,
When Christ arose;
Eternal life appear'd in view,
When Christ arose;

A glorious light from heaven stream'd,
And from the cross a radiance beam'd,
For ev'ry spirit was redeem'd,
When Christ arose.
