'Tis the day of Resurrection (John of Damascus/
John Mason Neale/Johannes Thomas Rüegg)

'Tis the day of Resurrection.

1. 'Tis the day of Resurrection,
  earth, tell it out abroad!
The Passover of gladness,
  the Passover of God!
From death to life eternal,
  from earth unto the sky,
our Christ hath brought us over,
  with hymns of victory. PDF - Midi

2. Our hearts be pure from evil,
  that we may see aright
the Lord in rays eternal
  of resurrection light:
and, listening to his accents,
  may hear, so calm and plain,
his own "All hail!" – and hearing,
  may raise the victor strain.

3. Now let the heavens be joyful!
  Let earth her song begin!
Let the round world keep triumph,
  and all that is therein:
in grateful exultation
  their notes let all things blend,
for Christ the Lord hath risen,
  our joy that hath no end.

John of Damascus, from the Greek translated by John Mason Neale,
in: Philip Schaff: Christ in Song, 1870, 190-191.
