Our Lord Christ hath risen! the tempter is foiled;
His legions are scattered, his strongholds are spoiled.
O sing, alleluia! O sing, alleluia!
O sing, alleluia! be joyful and sing,
Our great foe is baffled, Christ Jesus is king!

O Death, we defy thee! a stronger than thou
Hath entered thy palace; we fear thee not now!
O sing, alleluia! O sing, alleluia!
O sing, alleluia! be joyful and sing,
Death cannot affright us, Christ Jesus is king!

O Sin, thou art vanquished, thy long reign is o’er;
Though still thou dost vex us, we dread thee no more.
O sing, alleluia! O sing, alleluia!
O sing, alleluia! be joyful and sing,
Who now can condemn us, Christ Jesus is king!

Our Lord Christ hath risen! day breaketh at last;
The long night of weeping is now well nigh past.
O sing, alleluia! O sing, alleluia!
O sing, alleluia! be joyful and sing,
Our foes are all conquered, Christ Jesus is king!
