Description

SATB and Organ. This setting of of the hymn tune Vreuchten, features the second stanza in a minor key, then a triumphant return to the original with a soaring descant for the sopranos.

This joyful Eastertide,
away with care and sadness!
My Lord, the crucified,
has filled this day with gladness.

Refrain:
Had Christ, who once was slain,
not burst his three-day prison,
our faith would be in vain.
But now has Christ arisen.

Death's waters cannot chill
since Jesus crossed the river.
His love will keep me still;
his mercy is forever. [Refrain]

Now let us all rejoice
kept safe within God's keeping,
until the trumpet voice
shall call us from our sleeping. [Refrain]
