Lyrics

Verse 1
Christ, the Lord, is ris'n today,
Alleluia!
Sons of men and angels say,
Alleluia!
Raise your joys and triumphs high,
Alleluia!
Sing, ye heav'ns, and earth, reply,
Alleluia!

Verse 2
Vain the stone, the watch, the seal,
Alleluia!
Christ hath burst the gates of hell,
Alleluia!
Death in vain forbids His rise,
Alleluia!
Christ hath opened paradise,
Alleluia!

Verse 3
Lives again our glorious King,
Alleluia!
Where, O death, is now thy sting?
Alleluia!
Once He died our souls to save,
Alleluia!
Where thy victory, O grave?
Alleluia!

Verse 4
Soar we now where Christ hath led,
Alleluia!
Foll'wing our exalted head,
Alleluia!
Made like Him, like Him we rise,
Alleluia!
Ours the cross, the grave, the skies,
Alleluia!
