Christian Easter Songs

“Twas Easter-Sunday. The full-blossomed trees
Filled all the air with fragrance and with joy.” -Henry Wadsworth Longfellow
On the third day of Christ’s death as the trumpets blew for a new day, everyone was greeted with a miracle, His rebirth. Easter is the celebration of a new life, a new beginning, no wonder why it falls in spring. Spring symbolizes His resurrection through the birth of every new leaf during that season. Easter is the most important feast in Christian calendar. It falls on the first Sunday after the first full moon following March 21. Easter Sunday marks an end to a 40-day period of preparation of prayer and fasting, or Lent as it is called. It begins on Ash Wednesday and ends on Holy Saturday, the day before Easter.

Lyrics Of Easter Songs
Given here are the lyrics of famous Easter songs: 

Christian, Rise And Act Thy Creed
Christian, rise and act thy creed;
Let thy prayer be in thy deed;
Seek the right, perform the true,
Raise thy works and life anew.
Hearts around thee sink with care;
Thou canst help their load to bear;
Thou canst bring inspiring light,
Arm their faltering wills to fight.
Let thine aims be hope and joy,
And thy worship God's employ;
Give Him thanks in humble zeal,
Learning all His will to feel.
Come, then law divine, and reign;
Freest faith assailed in vain,
Perfect love bereft of fear,
Born in heaven and radiant here. 

Jesus Christ is Risen Today, Alleluia!
Jesus Christ Is risen today,
Our triumphant holy day,
Who did once upon the cross
Suffer to redeem our loss.
Hymns of praise, then, let us sing
Unto Christ, our heavenly King,
Who endured the cross and grave
Sinners to redeem and save.
But the pains which He endured
Our salvation have procured.
Now above the sky He's King,
Where the angels ever sing.
Sing we to our God above,
Praise eternal as His love:
Praise Him, all ye heavenly host,
Father, Son and Holy Ghost.

Christ Is Risen!
Christ hath risen! Hallelujah!
Blessèd morn of life and light!
Lo, the grave is rent asunder,
Death is conquered through His might.
Christ is risen! Hallelujah!
Gladness fills the world today;
From the tomb that could not hold Him,
See, the stone is rolled away!
Christ hath risen! Hallelujah!
Friends of Jesus, dry your tears;
Through the veil of gloom and darkness,
Lo, the Son of God appears!
Christ hath risen! Hallelujah!
He hath risen, as He said;
He is now the King of glory,
And our great exalted Head.

Christ Returneth
It may be at morn, when the day is awaking,
When sunlight through darkness and shadow is breaking
That Jesus will come in the fullness of glory
To receive from the world "His own."
O Lord Jesus, how long, how long
Ere we shout the glad song,
Christ returneth! Hallelujah!
Hallelujah! Amen. Hallelujah! Amen.
It may be at midday, it may be at twilight,
It may be, perchance, that the blackness of midnight
Will burst into light in the blaze of His glory,
When Jesus receives "His own."
While its hosts cry Hosanna, from heaven descending,
With glorified saints and the angels attending,
With grace on His brow, like a halo of glory,
Will Jesus receive "His own."
Oh, joy! oh, delight! should we go without dying,
No sickness, no sadness, no dread and no crying.
Caught up through the clouds with our Lord into glory,
When Jesus receives "His own."

He Lives

Stanza 1
I serve a risen Saviour; He's in the world today.
I know that He is living, whatever men may say.
I see His hand of mercy, I hear His voice of cheer,
And just the time I need Him He's always near.
He lives! He lives! Christ Jesus lives today!
He walks with me and talks with me along life's narrow way.
He lives! He lives! Salvation to impart!
You ask me how I know He lives? He lives within my heart.
Stanza 2
In all the world around me I see His loving care,
And though my heart grows weary I never will despair.
I know that He is leading, thro' all the stormy blast;
The day of His appearing will come at last.
Stanza 3
Rejoice, rejoice, O Christian! Lift up your voice and sing
Eternal hallelujahs to Jesus Christ, the King!
The Hope of all who seek Him, the Help of all who find,
None other is so loving, so good and kind.
