Easter Hymn Sing Lyrics

Hallelujah What A Savior

Verse 1
Man of sorrows what a name
For the Son of God who came
Ruined sinners to reclaim
Hallelujah what a Savior

Verse 2
Bearing shame and scoffing rude
In my place condemned He stood
Sealed my pardon with His blood
Hallelujah what a Savior

Verse 3
Guilty vile and helpless we
Spotless Lamb of God was He
Full atonement can it be
Hallelujah what a Savior

Verse 4
Lifted up was He to die
It is finished was His cry
Now in heaven exalted high
Hallelujah what a Savior

Verse 5
When He comes our glorious King
All His ransomed home to bring
Then anew this song we’ll sing
Hallelujah what a Savior

Philip Paul Bliss

Low In The Grave He Lay (Christ Arose)

Verse 1
Low in the grave He lay Jesus my Saviour
Waiting the coming day Jesus my Lord

Up from the grave He arose
With a mighty triumph o’er His foes
He arose a victor from the dark domain
And He lives forever with His saints to reign
He arose He arose
Hallelujah Christ arose

Vainly they watch His bed Jesus my Saviour
Vainly they seal the dead Jesus my Lord

Crown Him With Many Crowns

Verse 1
Crown Him with many crowns
The Lamb upon His throne
Hark how the heav’nly anthem drowns
All music but its own
Awake my soul and sing
Of Him who died for Thee
And hail Him as thy matchless King
Thro’ all eternity

Verse 2
Crown Him the Lord of life
Who triumphed o’er the grave
Who rose victorious in the strife
For those He came to save
His glories now we sing
Who died and rose on high
Who died eternal life to bring
And lives that death may die

Verse 3
Crown Him the Lord of heav’n
One with the Father known
One with the Spirit thro’ Him giv’n
From yonder glorious throne
To Thee be endless praise
For Thou for us hast died
Be Thou O Lord thro’ endless days
Adored and magnified

Verse 4
Crown Him the Lord of years
The potentate of time
Creator of the rolling spheres
Ineffably sublime
All hail, Redeemer, hail
For Thou hast died for me
Thy praise and glory shall not fail
Throughout eternity

George Elvey

Easter Song

Verse
Hear the bells ringing they’re singing
That we can be born again
Hear the bells ringing they’re singing
Christ is risen from the dead
The angel up on the tombstone said
He is risen just as He said
Quickly now go tell His disciples
That Jesus Christ is no longer dead

Chorus
Joy to the world
He is risen alleluia
He’s risen alleluia
He’s risen alleluia alleluia
(Alleluia)

Verse 1
Were you there when they crucified my Lord
Were you there when they crucified my Lord
O sometimes it causes me to tremble tremble tremble
Were you there when they crucified my Lord

Were you there when they nailed Him to the tree
Were you there when they nailed Him to the tree
O sometimes it causes me to tremble tremble tremble
Were you there when they nailed Him to the tree

Were you there when they laid Him in the tomb
Were you there when they laid Him in the tomb
O sometimes it causes me to tremble tremble tremble
Were you there when they laid Him in the tomb

Verse 4
Were you there when He rose up from the dead
Were you there when He rose up from the dead
O sometimes I feel like shouting glory glory glory
Were you there when He rose up from the dead

He Lives

Verse 1
I serve a risen Savior
He’s in the world today
I know that He is living
Whatever men may say
I see His hand of mercy
I hear His voice of cheer
And just the time I need Him
He’s always near

Chorus
He lives He lives
Christ Jesus lives today
He walks with me and talks with me
Along life’s narrow way
He lives He lives
Salvation to impart
You ask me how I know He lives
He lives within my heart

Verse 2
In all the world around me
I see His loving care
And though my heart grows weary
I never will despair
I know that He is leading
Through all the stormy blast
The day of His appearing
Will come at last

Verse 3
Rejoice rejoice O Christian
Lift up your voice and sing
Eternal hallelujahs
To Jesus Christ the King
The Hope of all who seek Him
The Help of all who find
None other is so loving
So good and kind

Alfred Henry Ackley

Because He Lives

Verse 1
God sent His Son they called Him Jesus
He came to love heal and forgive
He bled and died to buy my pardon
An empty grave is there to prove
My Savior lives

Chorus
Because He lives I can face tomorrow
Because He lives all fear is gone
Because I know He holds the future
And life is worth the living
Just because He lives

Verse 2
And then one day I’ll cross that river
I’ll fight life’s final war with pain
And then as death gives way to vict’ry
I’ll see the lights of glory
And I’ll know He reigns

Gloria Gaither, William J. Gaither
