Hymn 226
1. Yes! the Redeemer rose,
The Savior left the dead,
And o'er our hellish foes
High raised his conq'ring head;
In wild dismay,
The guards around
Fall to the ground,
And sink away.

2. Behold th' angelic bands
In full assembly meet,
To wait his high commands,
And worship at his feet.
Joyful they come,
And wing their way
From realms of day
To Jesus' tomb.

3. Then back to heav'n they fly
The joyful news to bear—
Hark!—as they soar on high,
What music fills the air!
Their anthems say—
"Jesus who bled,
Hath let the dead
He rose to-day."

4. Ye mortals! catch the sound—
Redeemed by him from hell,
And send the echo round
The globe on which you dwell;
Transported, cry—
"Jesus, who bled,
Hath left the dead,
No more to die."
