Waken, O world, if you would glimpse the wonder
Of God's great primal plan.
Open, O ears, if you would hear the thunder
Hurled from the heights to man.
How long shall Christ's high message be rejected?
Two thousand years have passed since it was told.
Must One again be born and resurrected
Ere man shall grasp again the secret ages old?

What, then, the miracle of Easter Day?
What meant the riven tomb, the hidden Might
That conquered death and rolled away the stone
And brought the Master back to mortal sight?
This! That throughout the worlds, One Life, unbroken—
Rushes and flames in an unending vow.
Death cannot be, and never has been, spoken—
God and immortal life are here and now!
