James McGranahan (1840–1907)

Christ has risen from the dead,
He who suffered in our stead;
Rise we with our risen Head;
Alleluiah! alleluiah!

They who sang when He was born,
Sing again this Easter morn,
Songs that gladden hearts forlorn;
Alleluiah! alleluiah!

He has burst the captives’ chain;
Now they glory in His name
Who for them did suffer shame;
Alleluiah! alleluiah!

See, the tomb has opened wide;
See, the Lord, who bled and died,
Now has risen glorified,
Alleluiah! alleluiah!

On that grand triumphant day,
When things old shall pass away,
We shall lift our voice and say,
Alleluiah! alleluiah!

Christ the first fruits now we see,
Of a harvest yet to be,
When we’re gathered, Lord, to Thee.
Alleluiah! alleluiah!
