There are clowns fallen down
People all around
Laughing and shouting “Hurray!”
Yes, the Easter parade is coming, children
O what a happy day!

The band is marching with a high step
Majorettes are twirling their batons
The floats and pretty girls are passing by
But where has the Easter Bunny gone?

Repeat chorus

Fire trucks sounding out their sirens
Musicians are playing with delight
Men up on horses, they are passing by
But the Easter Bunny’s not in sight!

Repeat chorus

Surrounded by a million jelly beans
Easter eggs are hanging everywhere
Who is this critter with great big ears?
The Easter Bunny’s finally here!

Let no one caught in sin remain
Inside the lie of inward shame
We fix our eyes upon the cross
And run to him who showed great love
And bled for us
Freely you bled, for us

Christ is risen from the dead
Trampling over death by death
Come awake, come awake!
Come and rise up from the grave!

Christ is risen from the dead
We are one with him again
Come awake, come awake!
Come and rise up from the grave!

Beneath the weight of all our sin
You bow to none but heavens will
No scheme of hell, no scoffer’s crown
No burden great can hold you down
In strength you reign
Forever let your church proclaim

Christ is risen from the dead
Trampling over death by death
Come awake, come awake!
Come and rise up from the grave

Christ is risen from the dead
We are one with him again
Come awake, come awake!
Come and rise up from the grave

Oh death! Where is your sting?
Oh hell! Where is your victory?
Oh Church! Come stand in the light!
The glory of God has defeated the night!

Oh death! Where is your sting?
Oh hell! Where is your victory?
Oh Church! Come stand in the light!
Our God is not dead, he’s alive! he’s alive!

Christ is risen from the dead
Trampling over death by death
Come awake, come awake!
Come and rise up from the grave
Christ is risen from the dead
We are one with him again
Come awake, come awake!
Come and rise up from the grave
Rise up from the grave…
