1.  HALLELUJAH, Hallelujah!

     Hearts to heaven and voices raise 

     Sing to God a hymn of gladness 

     Sing to God a hymn of praise! 

     He who on the cross a victim

     For the world's salvation bled,

     Jesus Christ, the King of Glory

     Now is risen from the dead.

2.  Now the iron bars are broken 

     Christ from death to life is born 

     Gloriuos life, and life immortal

     On this holy Easter morn:

     Christ has triumph'd and we conquer

     By His mighty enterprise

     We with Him to life eternal

     By His resurrection rise.

3.  Christ is risen, Christ the first-fruits

     Of the holy harvest-field

     Which will all its full abundance

     At His second coming yield

    Then the golden ears of harvest

    Will their heads before Him wave

    Ripen'd by His gloriuos sunshine

    From the furrows of the grave.

4.  Christ is risen, we are risen

     Shed upon us heavenly grace

     Rain and dew and gleams of glory

     From the brightness of Thy face

     That we, Lord, with hearts in heaven

     Here on earth may hearts in heaven

     And by angel-hands be gather'd

     And be ever safe with Thee.

5.  Hallelujah, Hallelujah!

     Glory be to God on high

     Halleluyah to the Saviour

     Who has gain'd the Victory

     Hallelujah, to Holy Ghost 

     Fount of love and sanctity

     Hallelujah, Hallelujah

     To the Triune Majesty.  Amen
