VERSE In many hearts does a bright light burn, Lit by the hope of the Lord's return. Yet brighter hope is here to receive: Jesus never did leave. When you carry love in your heart, You and the Lord are ne'er apart. No need to ever choose to grieve. Jesus never did leave.
CHORUS Let us rejoice this Easter day! Christ will never go away! Darkness dispels each time we pray! Love's light is here to stay!
VERSE This is the day that the Lord has made. Joy doesn't need to be delayed. No need to wipe your eyes on your sleeve. Jesus never did leave. Here is the message of the cross: Life is eternal, and can't be lost. What's to believe that requires a reprieve? Jesus never did leave.
