He is Risen!, by President Monson and Mormon Tabernacle Choir

(article by MoSop)

My beloved brothers and sisters, in our hour of deepest sorrow, we can receive profound peace from the words of the angel that first Easter morning: “He is not here: for he is risen.” (Matt. 28:6)
-------
He is risenHe is risen!
Tell it out with joyful voice.
He has burst his three days’ prison;
Let the whole wide earth rejoice.
Death is conquered; man is free.
Christ has won the victory!
-------
As one of His special witnesses on earth today, this glorious Easter Sunday, I declare that this is true.
- Thomas S. Monson, He Is Risen, April 2010


He Is Risen – Lyrics

  1. He is risen! He is risen!
    Tell it out with joyful voice.
    He has burst his three days’ prison;
    Let the whole wide earth rejoice.
    Death is conquered; man is free.
    Christ has won the victory.
  2. Come with high and holy hymning;
    Chant our Lord’s triumphant lay.
    Not one darksome cloud is dimming
    Yonder glorious morning ray,
    Breaking o’er the purple east,
    Symbol of our Easter feast.
  3. He is risen! He is risen!
    He hath opened heaven’s gate.
    We are free from sin’s dark prison,
    Risen to a holier state.
    And a brighter Easter beam
    On our longing eyes shall stream.
