Christ, the Lord, is risen today, Hallelujah! (Salvation Army 2015 version)

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

2 Love's redeeming work is done;
Fought the fight, the battle won;
Lo! the sun's eclipse is o'er,
Lo! he sets in blood no more.

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

4 Lives again our glorious King;
where, O death, is now thy sting?
Once he died our souls to save;
where's thy victory, boasting grave?

5 Soar we now where Christ has led,
following our exalted head;
made like him, like him we rise,
ours the cross, the grave, the skies.

Charles Wesley (1707–1788)
