    Verse 1
    Hallelujah, Hallelujah!
    Hearts to heaven and voices raise;
    Sing to God a hymn of gladness,
    Sing to God a hymn of praise!
    He who on the cross a victim
    For the world's salvation bled,
    Jesus Christ, the King of Glory,
    Now is risen from the dead.

    Verse 2
    Now the iron bars are broken,
    Christ from death to life is born,
    Glorious life, and life immortal,
    On this holy Easter morn:
    Christ has triumph'd, and we conquer
    By His mighty enterprise,
    We with Him to life eternal
    By His resurrection rise

    Verse 3
    Christ is risen, Christ the first-fruits
    Of the holy harvest-field,
    Which will all its full abundance
    At His second coming yield;
    Then the golden ears of harvest
    Will their heads before Him wave,
    Ripen'd by His glorious sunshine,
    From the furrows of the grave

    Verse 4
    Christ is risen; we are risen;
    Shed upon us heavenly grace,
    Rain and dew and gleams of glory
    From the brightness of Thy face,
    That we, Lord, with hearts in heaven
    Here on earth may fruitful be,
    And by angel-hands gather'd,
    And be ever safe with Thee

    Verse 5
    Hallelujah, Hallelujah!
    Glory be to God on high;
    Hallelujah to the Saviour,
    Who has gain'd the victory:
    Hallelujah to the Spirit,
    Fount of love and sanctity;
    Hallelujah, Hallelujah
    To the Triune Majesty
