Singer with midi-keyboard:


Alle, alle, alleluia,
Alle, alle, alleluia,
Praise Him every day.
Every day, sing alle,
Every day, sing alle,

He lived for us, He died for us,
He rose from the dead.
He freed us from the grasp of sin,
He rose from the dead.

He was a man, yet God’s own son
He rose from the dead.
He shares his glory with us now,
He rose from the dead.

He lights the darkness of our lives
He rose from the dead.
With him we rise to die no more
He rose from the dead.

  1. Jack Miffleton is the author of this song. It used to be known as Alle, Alle. I remember him when he was a Catholic priest in Roanoke, VA, when he wrote this song.

  2. I sang this in grade school in Cleveland Ohio in the late 70s and early 80s. It was a favorite among the kids and the organist.
