Staring with puzzled faces, into the open tomb,

Asking themselves what it could mean:

For as those disciples looked round, Christ’s body was not there,

Only the grave clothes could be seen.


Good news! Great joy!

Christ the Lord is ris’n, alleluia!

Good news! Great joy!

Christ the Lord is ris’n, alleluia!


Glorious resurrection, for God’s triumphant Son,

Victory over death has won.

And now we are liberated, from sin’s oppressive power,

Free now to serve the risen One.



Jesus, with great rejoicing and gladness in our hearts,

We give the praise that’s due your name.

Blessing, honour, glory, power, to you all conquering King,

For evermore you live and reign.
