Christ is risen, hallelujah! Risen our victorious Head! Sing His praises, hallelujah! Christ is risen from the dead! Gratefully our hearts adore Him As His light once more appears, Bowing down in joy before Him, Rising up from griefs and tears.
Refrain: Christ is risen, hallelujah! Risen our victorious Head! Sing His praises, hallelujah! Christ is risen from the dead!
Christ is risen! All the sadness Of His sacrifice is o’er; Through the open gates of gladness He returns to life once more; Death and hell before Him bending See Him rise, the victor now, Angels on His steps attending, Glory round His wounded brow.
Christ is risen! All the sorrow That last evening round Him lay Now hath found a glorious morrow In the rising of today. See the grave its first-fruits giving, Springing up from holy ground; Christ was dead, but now is living; He was lost, but He is found!
Christ is risen! Henceforth never Death or hell shall us enthrall; We are Christ’s, in Him forever We have triumphed over all. All the doubting and dejection Of our trembling hearts have ceased; Hail the day of resurrection! Let us rise and keep the feast.
