Hymn Text

1 Awake, my heart, with gladness, See what today is done;
Now, after gloom and sadness, Comes forth the glorious sun.
My Savior there was laid Where our bed must be made
When to the realms of light Our spirit wings its flight.

2 The foe in triumph shouted When Christ lay in the tomb;
But lo, he now is routed, His boast is turned to gloom.
For Christ again is free; In glorious victory
He who is strong to save Has triumphed o'er the grave.

3 This is a sight that gladdens-- What peace it doth impart!
Now nothing ever saddens The joy within my heart.
No gloom shall ever shake, No foe shall ever take.
The hope which God's own Son In love for me hath won.

4 Now hell, its prince, the devil, Of all its pow'r is shorn;
Now I am safe from evil, And sin I laugh to scorn.
Grim death with all its might And does not cause me fright:
It is a pow'rless form, Howe'er it rave and storm.

6 Now I will cling forever To Christ, my Savior true;
My Lord will leave me never, Whate'er he passes through.
He rends death's iron chain; He breaks through sin and pain;
He shatters hell's grim thrall; I follow him through all.

7 He brings me to the portal That leads to bliss untold,
Whereon this rhyme immortal Is found in script of gold:
"Who there my cross has shared Finds here a crown prepared;
Who there with me has died Shall here be glorified."
