1 Christ the Lord is risen on high!
Sing, ye heavens, and earth reply;
he endured the cross, the grave,
sinners to redeem and save.

2 Love's redeeming work is done,
fought the fight, the battle won!
He himself our ransom paid,
peace with God for ever made.

3 Vain the stone, the watch, the seal,
Christ has burst the gates of hell;
vain their efforts to enthral,
he has triumphed over all.

4 Christ our Lord is risen indeed,
Christ is now the church's head;
loud the song of triumph raise,
celebrate the victor's praise.
