Christ the Lord is risen today

Christ the Lord is risen today,

Alleluia!

Sons of men and angels say,

Alleluia!

Raise your joys and triumphs high,

Alleluia!

Sing ye heavn’s and earth reply,

Alleluia!

 

Lives again our glorious King,

Alleluia!

Where o death is now your sting

Alleluia!

Dying once He all doth save,

Where’s your victory, o grave?

Alleluia!

Alleluia!

 

Love’s redeeming work is done,

Alleluia!

Fought the fight, the battle’s won,

Alleluia!

Death in vain forbids Him rise,

Christ has opened Paradise.

Alleluia!

Alleluia!

Christ the Lord is risen. Christ the Lord is risen today!

 

Soar we now where Christ has led,

Alleluia!

Following our exalted Head,

Alleluia!

Made like Him, like Him we rise,

Ours the cross, the grave, the skies,

Alleluia!

Alleluia!

Christ the Lord is risen today,

Alleluia!

Alleluia!
