1. Yes! the Redeemer rose,
The Saviour left the dead,
In wild dismay,
And sunk away.
In full assembly meet,
Joyful they come,
To such a tomb.
And the glad tidings bear;
Their anthems say,
4. Ye mortals catch the sound,
Redeemed by him from hell;
Jesus who bled
• No more to die.'
Who sav'st us with thy blood !
With Thee we rise,
