Lyrics

The risen, living Christ
Let every heart adore!
To Him all praise and glory be!
The Christ of yesterday,
Today and evermore,
The everlasting Lord is He.

Refrain

Glory be and majesty,
And praise forevermore,
To Thee, our king and conqueror,
To Thee our mighty Prince of Power.

He lives, the risen Christ!
He lives no more to die!
He lives eternally to reign!
When all the saints redeemed,
And angel hosts on high
Shall swell the hallelujah strain.

Refrain

Exalt the risen Christ!
Exalt the living King!
Exalt the Lord Immanuel!
While sweetly in our hearts
The Easter carols ring,
Oh, let Him there supremely dwell.
