  1. Risen
    Poet: Hezekiah Butterworth


    Risen, Christ is risen!
    Hear the angel say;
    Never word so glorious,
    Burst upon the day!

    Risen, Christ is risen!
    Hear the church repeat,
    As her bannered armies
    Follow Jesus' feet.

    Risen, Christ is risen!
    Hail the morning bright,
    Children of the promise,
    Children of the light.

    Let our anthems say;
    For our sake the Saviour
    Rose this wondrous day.
    Ours the hopes eternal

    Of his empty tomb;
    Ours regained the Eden
    Of immortal bloom.
    Tenants for a moment

    Of abodes of clay,
    Heirs of habitations
    That shall ne'er decay,
    In his resurrection

    Life is but a breath,
    We his feet shall follow
    Through the gates of death.
    Shines the wondrous morning

    Hail him, — Jesus! Jesus!
    Conqueror of death!

  3. Easter Poem
    Poet: Caleb Davis Bradlee


    Christ has risen, earth rejoice,
    Utter forth a glorious voice
    To God, the King!
    And we shall rise, the truth is grand,
    spread it wide throughout the land,
    And praises sing!

    Christ has risen, and death no more
    Can bind us to the earthly shore,
    And chain the soul!
    But time will yield itself a slave,
    And an eternal mercy crave,
    And lose control!

    Christ has risen, and so shall all
    Who at his feet, repentant, fall,
    Arise to peace!
    And in that world of light above,
    Where God and Christ will reign in love,
    All care shall cease!

    Christ has risen, and death has fled,
    And God a mighty grace will shed
    On all who pray!
    Awake, each soul, and seek the light,
    And bless the Lord for thoughts so bright,
    This Easter day!

  5. An Easter Reveille
    Poet: John R. Slater


    First Trumpet:
    Souls in the east, awake.
    Make ready to meet the dawn.
    The sun of God is rising,
    The bridegroom from his chamber,
    Rejoicing as a strong man
    To run his race.
    He is risen.

    Second Trumpet:
    Souls in the north, awake.
    Souls of the dead, remember,
    He goeth before you into Galilee.
    Is he here? Is he there?
    He is everywhere;
    He is risen.

    Third Trumpet:
    Souls in the south, awake.
    Winter is dead, Spring lives.
    Purple and gold the crocus comes.
    The beauty of the world returns;
    He is risen.

    Fourth Trumpet:
    Souls in the west, awake.
    Souls of the years to come,
    Christ guide you on your way
    Into this world, and out again.
    He knows the way to come and go -
    Comes with a star, goes with a cross,
    And comes again with a triumph;
    He is risen.

    All Four Trumpets:
    Awake, all souls that sleep.
    Across the year but once or twice
    Can men hear angels calling.
    Heed that first trumpet, nor await the last.
    The resurrection moment soon is past.
    Life calls again, to all that would be living,
    He is risen.

  7. Risen
    Poet: Frederic L. Hosmer


    They came, bringing spices at the break of the day
    With hearts heavy-laden and sore,
    And lo, from the tomb was the stone rolled away,
    An angel sat there by the door!
    "Why seek ye the living 'mid emblems of death?
    Not here, He is risen," the shining one saith.

    O type through the ages and symbol of faith,
    Whose spirit is true evermore;
    The hearts we have cherished we lose not in death,
    The grave over love hath no power.
    There sitteth the angel, there speaketh the word -
    "Not here, they are risen," in silence is heard.
    O ye who still watch in the valley of tears

    O ye who still watch in the valley of tears
    And wait for the night to go by,
    Lift, lift up your eyes, on the mountains appears
    The day-spring of God from on high!
    And wait for the night to go by,
     He turneth the shadows of night into day; -
    "Not here, they are risen," His shining ones say.



  8. Risen Today
    An Old Latin Hymn


    Jesus Christ is risen today, -
    Our triumphant holy day, -
    Who did once upon the cross
    Suffer to redeem our loss.
    Hallelujah!

    Hymns of praise then let us sing
    Unto Christ our heavenly King,
    Who endured the cross and grave,
    Sinners to redeem and save.
    Hallelujah!

    But the pains which He endured
    Our salvation have procured;
    Now above the sky He's King,
    Where the angels ever sing, -
    Hallelujah!
