O, let us exalt our dear Lord and proclaim,
In songs of true gratitude, praise to His name!
As songs of the angels in sweetest accord,
Our thanks and our praises shall rise to the Lord.

All is o'er, the pain, the sorrow,
Human taunts and Satan's spite;
Death shall be despoiled tomorrow
Of the prey he grasps tonight.
Yet once more His own to save
Christ must sleep within the grave.

Fierce and deadly was the anguish
Of the bitter cross He bore.
How did soul and body languish,
Till the toil of death was o'er.
But that toil so fierce and dread,
Bruised and crushed the serpent's head.

Close and still the tomb that holds Him,
While in brief repose He lies.
Deep the slumber that enfolds Him
Veiled awhile from mortal eyes.
Slumber such as needs must be
After hard won victory.

Near this tomb with voice of sadness
Chant the anthem soft and low;
Loftier strains of joy and gladness
From tomorrow's hearts shall flow
Death and hell at length are slain,
Christ hath triumphed, Christ doth reign.
