If angels sang our Savior’s birth,
On that most blessèd morn,
Then let us imitate their mirth,
Now He again is born.


Surrexit Christus hodie,
Surrexit pro nobis;
Surrexit Christus hodie,
Gloria, Jesu Domino!

Grieve not, vain man, who mortal art,
That thou to earth must fall;
It was His portion, ’twas His part
Of Him who made us all.


Himself He humbled to the grave,
Made flesh like us to show,
That we as certainly shall have,
A resurrection too.


Then with perpetual hymns let Christ,
Who from the dead was raised,
With Father and the Holy Ghost,
Eternally be praised.
