1 Christ the Lord is ris'n today;
alleluia!
We on earth and angels say:
Alleluia!
Raise your joys and triumphs high;
alleluia!
Sing, ye heav'ns; thou earth, reply:
Alleluia!

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

3 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 vict'ry, boasting grave?
Alleluia!

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!

5 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!
