Hang out the banners and shout the news! Blow the trumpets and horns 'til there is no one who hasn't heard, "We shall not die anymore!"
I'm here to tell you that Jesus lives; As He lives, so shall we. Dying and fear have all passed away, Swallowed in victory! Morning has broken the cords away, There's no reason to fear, Why seek the living among the dead? Jesus, your Lord, is not here. He is alive, He's not here! Then where, O death, is your victory? Where, O grave, is your sting? Come, children, and dance with me! Sing to our living King! For love wins over everything, melts the spear and the sword. Join hands, let your voices ring, Christ is our risen Lord! Open the prisons and ring the bells! Join the ransomed and free, in celebration for what He's done; Jesus, the Christ, sets you free! He sets you free! He sets you free! He sets you free! He sets you free! Jesus, the Christ, sets you free!
