Sing joy to every rock and stream!
Joy to the swelling, ebbing tide!
Let all creation celebrate,
This day the curse was put aside.
Death owned his kingdom. Long and deep
The shadowed years piled up their pain.
But this day death himself is dead
And Life has overthrown his reign.
Sing clouds, sing stars; do not hold back
One atom of the praise that’s due!
For He who died to conquer death,
Has promised to make all things new.
