CHRIST THE LORD IS RISEN TODAY: Hallelujah!
Sons of men and angels say: Hallelujah!
Raise your joys and triumphs high: Hallelujah!
Sing, ye heavens, and earth reply: Hallelujah!

Love's redeeming work is done: Hallelujah!
Fought the fight, the battle won: Hallelujah!
Vain the stone, the watch, the seal: Hallelujah!
Christ hath burst the gates of hell: Hallelujah!

Lives again our glorious King: Hallelujah!
Where, O death, is now thy sting? Hallelujah!
Once He died, our souls to save: Hallelujah!
Where thy victory, O grave? Hallelujah!

Soar we now where Christ hath led: Hallelujah!
Following our exalted Head: Hallelujah!
Made like Him, like Him we rise: Hallelujah!
Ours the cross, the grave, the skies: Hallelujah!

Hail the Lord of earth and heaven: Hallelujah!
Praise to Thee by both be given: Hallelujah!
Thee we greet, in triumph sing: Hallelujah!
Hail our resurrected King: Hallelujah!
