Lyrics:


Jesus Christ is risen today,
    Alleluia!
Our triumphant holy day,
    Alleluia!
Who did once upon the cross,
    Alleluia!
Suffer to redeem our loss.
    Alleluia!

Hymns of praise then let us sing,
    Alleluia!
Unto Christ, our heavenly King,
     Alleluia!
Who endured the cross and grave,
     Alleluia!
sinners to redeem and save.
    Alleluia!

But the pains which he endured,
    Alleluia!
Our salvation have procured,
    Alleluia!
Now above the sky he's King,
    Alleluia!
Where the angels ever sing.
    Alleluia!
