Description

For SAB Choir and Organ. A wonderful tune in a useful and accessible setting for your smaller choir. Text by Elizabeth R. Charles.

Lift your voice rejoicing Mary,
Christ has risen from the tomb;
on the cross a suffering victim,
now as victor he is come. 
Whom your tears in death were mourning,

welcome with your smiles returning.
Let your alleluias rise!

Raise your weary eyelids, Mary,
see him living evermore; 
see his countenance how gracious,

see the wounds for you he bore. 
All the glory of the morning

pales before those wounds redeeming.
Let your alleluias rise!

Life is yours for ever, Mary,
for your light is come once more
and the strength of death is broken;
now your songs of joy outpour.
Ended now the night of sorrow,
love has brought the blessed morrow.
Let your alleluias rise!
