Tune:  Jesus, Thou Joy of Loving Hearts…


Thank you, dear Lord, for Easter joy,

Midst in a joyless world of fears

Where Satan seeks us to destroy,

But God the cry of the helpless hears!


His finished work at Calvary

I plead as shelter day by day,

Still I feel sin deep inside me,

Heavy it always will on me weigh!


Do Easter joy apply to me

Thou Spirit with that blessed aim

Christ as my whole sufficiency

In all my wretchedness to proclaim!


Calvary is the place alone

Where my old self was put to death,

Now, I´m with Him on His Throne,

There my new standing got gospel breath!


Let us rejoice in Easter grace

In our frailties of age,

As rays of sunshine on your face

In this last race on our earthly stage!
