Lyrics

Refrain

Christ, the Lord, is risen today,
He is risen indeed;
Christ, the Lord, is risen today,
He is risen indeed.

He captive led captivity,
He robbed the grave of victory,

He broke the bars of death,
He broke the bars of death.

Refrain

Hallelujah, hallelujah,
Hallelujah, Amen.
Hallelujah, hallelujah,
Hallelujah, Amen.

Let every mourning soul rejoice,
And sing with one united voice;
The Savior rose today,
The Savior rose today.

Refrain

The great and glorious work is done,
Free grace to all thro’ Christ, the Son;
Hosanna to His name,
Hosanna to His name.

Refrain

Let all that fill the earth and sea
Break forth in tuneful melody,
And swell the mighty song,
And swell the mighty song.
