1 'Christ the Lord is risen today',
Alleluia!
Sons of men and angels say,
Alleluia!
Raise your joys and triumphs high,
Alleluia!
Sing, ye heavens, and earth reply,
Alleluia!

2 Love's redeeming work is done,
Alleluia!
Fought the fight, the battle won,
Alleluia!
Death in vain forbids Him rise,
Alleluia!
Christ has opened paradise,
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 thy victory, O grave?
Alleluia!

4 Soar we now where Christ was led,
Alleluia!
Following our exalted head,
Alleluia!
Made like him, like him we rise,
Alleluia!
Ours the cross, the grave, the skies,
Alleluia!
