Lyrics

He is risen—day of wonder,
Day when death itself was slain!
Like a grandly swelling thunder
Sounds the word, He lives again.

Refrain

Hallelujah! hallelujah!
Praises to the Lamb we sing,
Hallelujah! hallelujah!
Hail to our victorious king!

See His royal banner waving,
On the bloodstained field of strife!
There, for humblest hearts that love Him,
Jesus bought eternal life.

Refrain

Blessèd Jesus, living Savior,
Thou art risen from the grave;
We are trusting in Thy favor;
Thou art mighty now to save.
