The day of resurrection dawns
as angels wait beside the grave:
not to console a weeping world
but waiting to declare: "He saves."

For women in the early light,
and men hid in an upper room
where grief has blotted out the hope;
a dawning light invades the gloom.

So hearts that broke hear cries of joy
and leap as angel voices say:
“He has been raised, he is not here.
He goes before you on His Way.”

Where darkness ruled the Christ light shines.
Belief is blessed and hope revived.
We go to all the world and tell
the Gospel truth: “He is alive!”

Tune: Born by the Holy Spirit’s breath
