Hymn/Song Information

Good Joseph had a garden




Refrain.
Sing the joy of Easter Day,
The Easter triumph tell,
Jesus rose on Easter Day,
The Lord Who loves us well.


Sing the joy of Easter Day,
The Easter triumph tell,
Jesus rose on Easter Day,
The Lord Who loves us well.



Good Joseph had a garden,
Close by that sad green hill
Where Jesus died a bitter death
To save mankind from ill.

Sing the joy of Easter Day,
The Easter triumph tell,
Jesus rose on Easter Day,
The Lord Who loves us well.



One evening in that garden,
Their faces dark with gloom,
They laid the Saviour’s body
Within good Joseph’s tomb.

Sing the joy of Easter Day,
The Easter triumph tell,
Jesus rose on Easter Day,
The Lord Who loves us well.



There came the holy women
With spices and with tears;
The angels tried to comfort them,
But could not calm their fears.

Sing the joy of Easter Day,
The Easter triumph tell,
Jesus rose on Easter Day,
The Lord Who loves us well.



Came Mary to that garden
And sobbed with heart forlorn;
She thought she heard the gardener ask;
‘Whom seekest thou this morn?’

Sing the joy of Easter Day,
The Easter triumph tell,
Jesus rose on Easter Day,
The Lord Who loves us well.



She heard her own name spoken,
And then she lost her care:
All in his strength and beauty
The risen Lord stood fair!

Sing the joy of Easter Day,
The Easter triumph tell,
Jesus rose on Easter Day,
The Lord Who loves us well.



Good Joseph had a garden;
Amid its trees so tall
The Lord Christ rose on Easter Day:
He lives to save us all.

Sing the joy of Easter Day,
The Easter triumph tell,
Jesus rose on Easter Day,
The Lord Who loves us well.



And as he rose at Easter
He is alive for aye,
The very same Lord Jesus Christ
Who hears us sing today.

Sing the joy of Easter Day,
The Easter triumph tell,
Jesus rose on Easter Day,
The Lord Who loves us well.



Go tell the Lord Christ’s message,
The Easter triumph sing,
Till all his waiting children know
That Jesus is their King.

Sing the joy of Easter Day,
The Easter triumph tell,
Jesus rose on Easter Day,
The Lord Who loves us well.
