Hark! the springtide breezes pass the news along,
Jesus Christ has risen, fill the world with song;
Earth and all her voices sing glad hosannas to the King,
Praises to our Lord we bring, Hallelujah!

Refrain

Glory, hallelujah! Praise the victor King,
Who to all His people life and light doth bring,
Glory, hallelujah! Praise the victor King,
Who to all His people life and light doth bring.

Finished is the conflict, all the battles o’er,
Peace that passeth knowledge comes to us once more,
Raise your notes of triumph high, Jesus lives no more to die,
Earth and Heav’n with joy reply, Hallelujah!

Refrain

Golden gates are lifted, doors stand open wide,
Lo! the King is standing at His Father’s side,
In the land of endless light angels praise Him, day and night,
Crown Him ever Lord of might, Hallelujah!

Refrain

Hallelujah! Hallelujah!
