For Unison Voices and Organ - A bright, sparkling arrangement of the traditional Dutch carol, Vreuchten. With or without the trumpets, it's a great setting! Could you do this arrangement as a congregational hymn? ABSOLUTELY!

Lyrics

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 threeday prison,
our faith had been in vain;
but now is Christ arisen,
arisen, arisen, arisen.

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

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