Lyrics

Christ is risen!
O’er His foes He reigneth;
Head o’er all things,
He all worlds sustaineth:
Sing hallelujah! Halleluja!
Christ the Lord is risen!

Christ is risen!
Now to us is given
Through His sorrows,
Peace, His peace from Heaven!
Sing hallelujah! Halleluja!
Christ the Lord is risen!

Christ is risen!
Now His Church inherits
Life eternal
Through her Savior’s merits:
Sing hallelujah! Halleluja!
Christ the Lord is risen!

Christ is risen!
Praise and adoration,
Lord, we bring Thee;
And with exultation,
Sing hallelujah! Halleluja!
Christ the Lord is risen!
