See our Lord, the Prince of heaven.
Think of all He left behind –
All the Father’s loving presence,
Heart-to-heart and unconfined.
Christ descended to our darkness,
Shared our tears, and shared our bread,
Shared the fullness of our dying,
Took His place among our dead.

But all Hades could not hold Him
Or constrain His mighty Word.
He proclaimed unbounded freedom
Till the hearts of all had heard.
Christ the Light has banished darkness!
Christ the Life has raised the dead!
Now the gates of hell are open!
Christ has crushed the serpent’s head!

See our Savior now ascending,
Countless thousands in His train.
Heaven’s gates are standing open.
Death itself is heaven’s gain.
Easter people, live His praises!
Let each fear before Him fall.
He is joy and peace and freedom,
Life and light and All-in-all!
