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
