1 All creation join to say:
Christ the Lord is risen today!
raise your joys and triumphs high;
sing, you heavens, and earth reply:

2 Love's redeeming work is done;
fought the fight, the battle won:
see, our Sun's eclipse has passed;
see, the dawn has come at last!

3 Vain the stone, the watch, the seal:
Christ has burst the gates of hell;
death in vain forbids his rise—
Christ has opened paradise:

4 Now he lives, our glorious king;
now, O death, where is your sting?
Once he died, our souls to save—
where's your victory, boasting grave?

5 So we rise where Christ has led,
following our exalted head;
made like him, like him we rise—
ours the cross, the grave, the skies:

6 Hail the Lord of earth and heaven!
praise to you by both be given;
every knee to you shall bow,
risen Christ, triumphant now:
