Believers in the risen Christ,
sing praises and rejoice,
as alleluias fill the earth
from every heart and voice.
Our Lord has risen from the dead,
from trial, cross and grave
to give to all eternal life
bought with the life Christ gave.
Believers in the Savior Christ,
a sacred purpose came
with Jesus' death upon the cross
no life remained the same.
Our God reached down to give this grace
new life awaited all
so let us glorify Christ's name
in answering God's call.
Believers in the living Christ,
on this the day of days,
give thanks for this a transformed life
and seek to find the ways
to share the love that Christ still gives--
the peace, the hope, the care--
as we proclaim eternal life
which all believers share.
Believers in the Easter hope,
with new determined zeal,
go out to live by Christ's design
the Savior will reveal.
For life in Christ will bring the joy
that nothing takes away
in word and deed we celebrate
life-giving Easter day.
