Hallelujah un­to Je­sus!
Now He lives to die no more;
Let all na­tions sing His prais­es,
Gladly sing them o’er and o’er.


Hallelujah! Hal­le­lujah!
Hallelujah! to our king!
From the tomb to­day He’s ris­en,
Hallelujah we’ll sing.

Hallelujah un­to Je­sus!
Who for us once bled, and died,
He is now o’er death, the Vic­tor,
Hail Him king the Cru­ci­fied.


Hallelujah un­to Je­sus!
Blessèd first­fruits of the dead;
He our re­sur­rect­ion sure­ty,
Lives for us our ris­en king.


Hallelujah un­to Je­sus!
Death is robbed now of its sting;
And the tomb for us is light­ed,
Hallelujah to our king.
