My blessed Lord was crucified,
The day was dark, and grief was wide,
For hope was crushed and all seem'd vain,
Until that Saviour rose again.
Ring out the blessed news again!
Oh!bear aloft the strain,
The mighty Lord is ris'n in pow'r,
He died, but not in vain!
He brings His great salvation nigh,
And on His love bids us rely,
He bought our peace thro' grief and pain,
But oh!He did not die in vain!
O, wond'rous news of life and love!
That Jesus lives and reigns above!
He made the path to glory plain,
Ah, no!He did not die in vain.
"He did not die in vain"
