Sing aloud, ye Christian lands,
Songs of greatest triumph,
For your Lord has burst the bands—
Lives no more to die.
O sad the night the Lord lay dead;
All earth was steeped in sorrow;
But hail! He triumphed, as He said,
And rose to reign on high.

Refrain

Sing we loud the chorus,
Sending praise before us;
Jesus reigneth o’er us;
King of kings is He.
O sad the night the Lord lay dead;
All earth was steeped in sorrow;
But hail! He triumphed, as He said,
And rose to reign on high.

Hallelujah! Praise the Lord!
Raise the mighty anthem;
Death is vanquished by His Word,
Christ has made us free.
The stone and seal, the guard at night,
Their watch in silence keeping,
Were all in vain, for in His might
The Savior rose again.

Refrain

Praise the Lord! Exultant King!
List! Angelic voices,
As to earth the news they bring—
Immortality!
From out the tomb, in majesty,
He came in radiant beauty,
And rose with heav’nly hosts to be
The King eternally.

Refrain
