Christ the Lord is risn’n again!
Christ hath broken ev’ry chain!
Hark, the angels shout for joy,
Singing evermore on high, Alleluia!

He, who gave for us His life,
Who for us endured the strife,
Is our Paschal Lamb today!
We too sing for joy, and say Alleluia!

He, who bore all pain and loss
Comfortless upon the Cross,
Lives in glory now on high,
Pleads for us and hears our cry. Alleluia!

He, whose path no records tell,
Who descended into hell;
Who the strong man armed hath bound,
Now in highest heav’n is crowned.

Now He bids us tell abroad
How the lost may be restored,
How the penitent forgiv’n,
How we too may enter heav’n. Alleluia!

Thou, our Paschal Lamb indeed,
Christ, today Thy people feed;
Take our sins and guilt away
That we all may sing for ay, Alleluia
