Christ is risen! Christ is risen!
He hath burst His bonds in twain;
Christ is risen! Christ is risen!
Alleluia! swell the strain!
For our gain He suffered loss
By divine decree;
He hath died upon the cross,
But our God is He.

Refrain

Christ is risen! Christ is risen!
He hath burst His bonds in twain;
Christ is risen! Christ is risen!
Alleluia! swell the strain!

See the chains of death are broken;
Earth below and Heav’n above
Joy in each amazing token
Of His rising, Lord of love;
He forevermore shall reign
By the Father’s side,
Till He comes to earth again,
Comes to claim His Bride.

Refrain

Glorious angels downward thronging
Hail the Lord of all the skies;
Heav’n, with joy and holy longing
For the Word Incarnate cries,
Christ is risen! Earth, rejoice!
Gleam, ye starry train!
All creation, find a voice;
He o’er all shall reign.

Refrain
