SATB - A spirited Easter Carol with text from George Woodward. A perfect piece for your Easter Vigil, Easter morning (how about an introit?), or anytime during the 50 days of Easter.
We will be merry, far and wide,
In this most holy Eastertide:
Our life we owe to Him who died. Alleluia!
Now Christ is ris'n to die no more,
Death on the Cross who nobly bore;
Him therefore less we evermore. Alleluia!
The gates of death in twain He broke,
And led thereout His ransomed folk,
Aye free from Satan's deadly yoke. Alleluia!
Good Christian people, sing for glee,
And praise the Holy Trinity.
From age to age eternally. Alleluia!
