When the children went to play,
They were filled with fright;
It was after break of day
That they saw this sight.
Women shouting, "He is ris'n,"
Christ has burst from out his pris'n.
Victory! Victory!

Children all come join the throng,
Bid your fright begone;
Sing with Mary, her glad song,
Christ reign has begun.
Glowing with immortal bloom,
Christ has risen from the tomb.
Victory! Victory!
