EASTER DAY

SONG: THINE BE THE GLORY

Artist: Choir of Portsmouth Cathedral
Words/Music : Hoyle/Handel
Recording: Herald HAVPCD 205

Thine be the glory, risen,
conquering Son;
endless is the victory,
thou o'er death hast won;
angels in bright raiment
rolled the stone away,
kept the folded grave clothes
where thy body lay.

Refrain
Thine be the glory, risen conquering Son,
Endless is the vict'ry, thou o'er death hast won.

Lo! Jesus meets us,
risen from the tomb;
Lovingly he greets us,
scatters fear and gloom;
let the church with gladness,
hymns of triumph sing;
for her Lord now liveth,
death hath lost its sting.

Refrain

No more we doubt thee,
glorious prince of life;
life is naught without thee;
aid us in our strife;
make us more than conquerors,
through thy deathless love:
bring us safe through Jordan
to thy home above.

Refrain

SONG: HE IS RISEN

Artist: The Graduate Choir
Words/Music: Alexander/Madden
Recording: Atoll ACD 105

He is risen, he is risen!
Tell it with a joyful voice:
he has burst his three days' prison;
let the whole wide earth rejoice:
death is conquered, man is free,
Christ has won the victory.

Come, ye sad and fearful-hearted,
with glad smile and radiant brow!
Lent's long shadows have departed;
All his  woes are over now,
and the passion that he bore--
sin and pain can vex no more.

Come, with high and holy hymning,
shout our Lord's triumphant day;
not one darksome cloud is dimming
yonder glorious morning ray,
breaking o'er the purple east,
symbol of our Easter feast.

He is risen, he is risen!
Tell it with a joyful voice:
he has burst his three days' prison;
let the whole wide earth rejoice:
death is conquered, man is free,
Christ has won the victory.

SONG: LOW IN THE GRAVE HE LAY

Artist: Choir of Yorkminster Park Baptist Church
Words/Music: Lowry
Recording: Marquis Classics

Low in the grave He lay –
Jesus my Savior!
Waiting the coming day –
Jesus my Lord!

Refrain
Up from the grave He arose,
With a mighty triumph o’er His foes
He arose a Victor from the dark domain,
And He lives forever with His saints to reign.
He arose! He arose!
Hallelujah! Christ arose!


Refrain

Vainly they watch His bed –
Jesus, my Savior!
Vainly they seal the dead –
Jesus my Lord!


Refrain

Death cannot keep his prey –
Jesus, my Savior!
He tore the bars away –
Jesus my Lord!

Refrain

SONG: THIS JOYFUL EASTERTIDE

Artist: Cambridge Singers
Words/Music: Woodward/Trad.
Recording: Collegium CDCD 500

This joyful Eastertide,
away with care and sorrow!
My love, the crucified,
hath sprung to life this morrow.

Refrain
Had Christ, that once was slain,
ne'er burst his three-day prison,
our faith had been in vain;
but now is Christ arisen,
arisen, arisen, arisen.

My flesh in hope shall rest,
and for a season slumber,
till trump from east to west
shall wake the dead in number.

Refrain

Death's flood hath lost its chill,
since Jesus crossed the river:
Lover of souls, from ill
my passing soul deliver.

Refrain

SONG: O CHRIST THE SAME

Artist: Choir of Portsmouth Cathedral
Words/Music: Dudley-Smith/Trad.
Recording: Herald HAVPCD 205

O Christ the same, through all our story's pages--
our loves and hopes, our failures and our fears;
eternal Lord, the King of all the ages,
unchanging still, amid the passing years:
O living Word, the source of all creation,
who spread the skies, and set the stars ablaze;
O Christ the same, who wrought our whole salvation,
we bring our thanks for all our yesterdays.

O Christ the same, the friend of sinners, sharing
our inmost thoughts, the secrets none can hide;
still as of old upon your body bearing
the marks of love, in triumph glorified:
O Son of Man, who stooped for us from heaven,
O Prince of life, in all your saving power,
O Christ the same, to whom our hearts are given,
we bring our thanks for this the present hour.

O Christ the same, secure within whose keeping
our lives and loves, our days and years remain,
our work and rest, our waking and our sleeping,
our calm and storm, our pleasure and our pain:
O Lord of love, for all our joys and sorrows,
for all our hopes, when earth shall fade and flee,
O Christ the same, beyond our brief tomorrows,
we bring our thanks for all that is to be.

SONG: CHRIST THE LORD IS RISEN TODAY

Artist: Lincoln Cathedral Choir
Composer: Ireland
Label: Naxos 8.573014

Christ the Lord is risen today,
Christians, haste your vows to pay:
Offer ye your praises meet
At the Paschal Victim's feet.
For the sheep the Lamb hath bled,
Sinless in the sinner's stead;
"Christ is risen," to-day we cry;
Now he lives no more to die.

Christ, the Victim undefiled,
Man to God hath reconciled,
Whilst in strange and awful strife
Met together death and life.
Christians, on this happy day,
Haste with joy your vows to pay:
"Christ is risen," today we cry;
Now he lives no more to die.

Christ, who once for sinners bled,
Now the first-born from the dead,
Throned in endless might and power,
Lives and reigns for evermore.
Hail, eternal Hope on high!
Hail, Thou King of victory!
Hail, Thou Prince of Life adored!
Help and save us, gracious Lord!

SONG: THE DAY OF RESURRECTION

Artist: Choir of King’s College Cambridge
Words/Music: John of Damascus (trans Neale)/Trad (Mainzer Gesangbuch)
CD Label: Argo 414609

The day of resurrection!
Earth, tell it out abroad;
the Passover of gladness,
the Passover of God.
From death to life eternal,
from earth unto the sky,
our God hath brought us over,
with hymns of victory.

Our hearts be pure from evil,
that we may see aright
the Lord in rays eternal
of resurrection light;
and listening to his accents,
may hear so calm and plain
his own "All hail!" and, hearing,
may raise the victor strain.

Now let the heavens be joyful!
Let earth her song begin!
The round world keep high triumph,
and all that is therein!
Let all things seen and unseen
their notes in gladness blend,
for Christ the Lord is risen,
our joy that hath no end.
