Song background:

 In 2013, my husband, W. Gerrit van Dyk, got a “Special Recognition” award in the LDS Church’s yearly music submission for the words of this hymn in the “Hymn Text” category (His copy of the words published by LDS.org found here under his original title: “He Lives! He Lives!”).  He had always wanted to write a new Easter hymn since Easter is his favorite holiday of the year, but there are so few hymns specifically written for this special day.

I was so proud of him when he got this award and hoped to someday write music to go with these beautiful words.  This is the result–I hope you enjoy it!

Lyrics: The Sun, in glory, rose that day

When women heard the angels say:

“The Lord is risen from the tomb!”

And thus dispelled death’s awful gloom.

He lives! He lives! O wondrous sound!

The Son of God could not be bound!

He lives! He lives! Let all rejoice!

And sing aloud with heart and voice!

“Why seek the Living among the dead?

Remember what the Lord hath said:

‘Once crucified by sinful men,

When three days pass, I’ll rise again.’”

He lives! He lives! O wondrous sound!

The Son of God could not be bound!

He lives! He lives! Let all rejoice!

And sing aloud with heart and voice!

“Ye men of Gallilean birth,

Why gaze ye heavenward from earth?

This Jesus taken up from thee,

Shall come again just as ye see.”

He lives! He lives! O wondrous sound!
