Rejoice, rejoice, ye sons of earth, rejoice,
He rose, the Son of Man arose;
Death held Him in his icy chain,
He burst the mighty links in twain,
And rose, He rose, Immanuel arose;
He rose, Immanuel arose.

Rejoice, rejoice ye once doomèd souls, rejoice,
We rose, in Christ our Lord we rose;
Our hope so long in death had lain,
But Christ o’erthrew the monster’s reign,
And rose, He rose, humanity arose;
He rose, humanity arose.

Rejoice, rejoice ye heirs of Heav’n, rejoice,
He rose, the Son of God arose;
A ris­en band with Him He led,
As upward thro’ the clouds He sped,
And rose, He rose, to Heav’n above He rose,
He rose, to Heav’n above He rose.
