Christ the Lord is ris'n today, Alleluia!
Sons of men and angels say! Alleluia!
Raise your joys and triumphs high: Alleluia!
Sing ye heavens, thou earth reply. Alleluia!

Love's redeeming work is done; Alleluia!
Fought the fight, the battle won: Alleluia!
Lo! the sun's eclipse is o'er, Alleluia!
Lo! he sets in blood no more! Alleluia!

Vain the stone, the watch, the seal, Alleluia!
Christ has burst the gates of hell: Alleluia!
Death in vain forbids his rise; Alleluia!
Christ hath opened paradise.

Lives again our glorious King! Alleluia!
Where, O Death is now thy sting? Alleluia!
Once he died our souls to save; Alleluia!
Where's thy victory, boasting grave Alleluia!

Soar we now where Christ has led, Alleluia!
Following our exalted Head, Alleluia!
Made like him, like him we rise, Alleluia!
Ours the cross, the grave, the skies. Alleluia!

Hail the Lord of earth and heav'n! Alleluia!
Praise to thee by both be giv'n. Alleluia!
Thee we greet triumphant now; Alleluia!
Hail the resurrection, thou!

King of glory, soul of bliss, Alleluia!
Everlasting life is this: Alleluia!
Thee to know, thy pow'r to prove, Alleluia!
Thus to sing, and thus to love! Alleluia!
