Easter Octave - 7



The whole bright world rejoices now,
the birds sing out on every bough;
Christ is risen! Alleluia!
Then shout beneath the racing skies
to him who rose that we may rise:
Alleluia! Christ is risen!
Alleluia! Christ is risen!
Alleluia!

Let us rejoice! All shall be well,
friends severed now in heaven shall dwell:
Christ is risen! Alleluia!
The end of all our ways is love;
then rise with him to things above:
Alleluia! Christ is risen!
Alleluia! Christ is risen!
Alleluia!

Now let all living things rejoice,
let young and old lift heart and voice:
Christ is risen! Alleluia!
He rose to cheer us on our way,
he lives to bless us all our days:
Alleluia! Christ is risen!
Alleluia! Christ is risen!
Alleluia!

German (1623)
Translated by Percy Dearmer (1867-1936)

Happy Feast!
