Hail the Days of Resurrection

When our faith is tried and test-ed by the evils that o-ppress;
When our hope is stretched to break-ing by the fears that we con-fess.
Lift our heads to see your good-ness that se-cures our li-ber-ty.
Hail the days of res-ur-rec-tion! Christ has claimed the vic-to-ry!

Faith-ful ser-vants gath-er round us, bear-ing wit-ness to God’s might;
Show-ing us the way of courage, shin-ing the e-ter-nal light;
Lead us with the hope of Je-sus, Re-deem-er of his-to-ry.
Hail the days of res-ur-rec-tion! Christ has claimed the vic-to-ry!

Ri-ver flow-ing, life be-stow-ing, peo-ple sing-ing, tears are dried;
Leaves of heal-ing for the na-tions, gates of grace are o-pen wide.
Je-sus lifts us to the cit-y that re-veals hope’s mys-ter-y.
Hail the day of res-ur-rec-tion! Christ has claimed the vic-to-ry!

Eastertide; 1 Corinthians 15:54-57; Hebrews 12:1; Revelation 21:1-5; 22:1-2
