Description
A festive Easter canticle for choir, organ, and brass, with a refrain which may be sung by the congregation. From its opening fanfare to its final descant, this is a highly effective and exciting piece!

Anthem text
Christ is risen! Alleluia!

Refrain
This is the day the LORD has made,
and we will rejoice and be glad in it.

Our glorious risen LORD
has triumphed o'er the tomb;
now this most joyous Eastertide
dispells all doubt and gloom. Refrain

At early light of morn
the women went their way
to Jesus' tomb to honor him
that first glad Easter day. Refrain

But Christ no longer lay
fastbound in death's domain.
The angel said, "He is not here.
Let us this news proclaim. Refrain

O day above all days,
O radiant morning bright;
on you the powers of darkness fell;
Christ's own were born to light. Refrain

Alleluia.

--K. Lee Scott, refrain based on Psalm 118:24
