1. Jesus Christ is ris’n today, Alleluia! Our triumphant holy day, Alleluia! Who did once, upon the cross, Alleluia! Suffer to redeem our loss, Alleluia!
2. Hymns of praise, then let us sing, Alleluia! Unto Christ, our heav’nly King, Alleluia! Who endured the cross and grave, Alleluia! Sinners to redeem and save, Alleluia!
3. Sing we to our God above, Alleluia! Praise eternal as His love: Alleluia! Praise Him, all you heav’nly host, Alleluia! Father, Son, and Holy Ghost, Alleluia!
