Hymn/Song Information

Angels roll the rock away Death yield up




Angels, roll the rock away,
Death, yield up your mighty Prey.
See, the Savior leaves the tomb,
|:Glowing with immortal bloom.:|


’Tis the Savior! angels, raise
Fame’s eternal trump of praise.
Let the world’s remotest bound
|:Hear the joy inspiring sound.:|


Now ye saints, lift up your eyes
Now to glory see Him rise,
In long triumph up the sky,
|:Up to waiting worlds on high.:|


Heaven unfolds its portals wide,
Glorious Hero, through them ride:
King of glory mount Thy throne,
|:Thy great Father’s, and Thine own.:|


Praise Him all ye heavenly choirs,
Raptured, sweep your sounding lyres
Sons of men, in humbler strain,
|:Sing your mighty Savior’s reign.:|


Every note with wonder swell;
Sin o’erthrown, and captived hell!
Where is now, O death! thy sting?
|:Where thy terrors, vanquished king!:|


---Alternative verses---


Angels, roll the rock away,
Death, yield up your mighty Prey.
See, the Savior leaves the tomb,
|:Rises with immortal bloom.:|


'Tis the Saviour; seraphs, raise
Your triumphant shouts of praise:
Let the earth's remotest bound
Hear the joy-inspiring sound.


Lift, ye saints, lift up your eyes;
Now to glory see him rise;
Hosts of angels on the road
Hail and sing th' incarnate God.


Hail! victorious Jesus, hail!
On Thy cloud of glory sail
In long triumph through the sky,
|:Up to waiting worlds on high.:|


Heaven unfolds its portals wide,
Glorious Conqueror, through them ride:
King of glory mount Thy throne,
|:Boundless empire, and Thine own.:|


Praise him, all ye heavenly choirs,
Praise, and sweep your golden lyres;
Praise him in your noblest songs;
Praise him from ten thousand tongues.


Praise him, all ye heavenly choirs,
Praise him with your golden lyres;
Praise him in your noblest songs;
Praise him from ten thousand tongues.
