Lyrics

Chorus:
We are the Easter people, Alleluia is our song
Let us rejoice, let us sing out Jesus is risen, Alleluia!

He died for us, now He is risen,
We share his life, Jesus is Lord.

His light shines out, dispelling darkness
Tell the whole world, Jesus is Lord.

Proclaim His glory, Christ id the Saviour
He dies no more, Jesus is Lord.

God’s people sing, you share His victory
Have no more fear, Jesus is Lord.

See more ...

KEEP IN CASE ORIGINAL IS REMOVED, BUT DO NOT DISPLAY
We are the Easter people, Alleluia is our song
Let us rejoice, let us sing out Jesus is risen, Alleluia!

He died for us, now He is risen,
We share his life, Jesus is Lord.

His light shines out, dispelling darkness
Tell the whole world, Jesus is Lord.

Proclaim His glory, Christ id the Saviour
He dies no more, Jesus is Lord.

God’s people sing, you share His victory
Have no more fear, Jesus is Lord.
