On the Glad and Glorious Resurrection of Christ (2)

Angels, blow your trumpets! Seraphim ring out and sing

Jubilate, jubilate you happy heavenly choir!

Sun and stars, shine and dance before your conquering hero!

Mountain and hill, cliff and crag, leap in glad rejoicing!

You most blessed people, who have won salvation,

praise, honour, thank, and lift on high

the one who rose and raises you from death to Heaven’s choir.

His resurrection restores to you the innocence of Paradise.

Shall sin’s might overpower the Almighty

who is Himself eternity? No, sin must submit.

Christ’s sea of righteousness puts out, not merely sparks, but the whole fire.

The long longed-for saviour has destroyed all horrors.

What will the World, Death, Hell or Devil wrest from a Christian?

They are disturbed, destroyed: the Saviour reigns in heaven.
