Lyrics

Christ is risen from the dead,
Risen as he truly said,
O praise the Lord with grateful voice!
Bless his name, rejoice, rejoice!
Resurrexit sicut dixit,
Alleluia, Alleluia!

Angels clad in snowy white,
Coming from the realms of light,
They bid us sing with grateful voice!
Bid us all rejoice, rejoice!
Resurrexit sicut dixit,
Alleluia, Alleluia!

Man was but a slave before,
Man is free forevermore,
Now heav'n and earth, with grateful voice,
Bid us all rejoice, rejoice!
Resurrexit sicut dixit,
Alleluia, Alleluia!
