1 Sing alleluia, Christ does live,
and peace on earth restore;
come, ransomed souls, and glory give,
sing, worship and adore;
to him our heartfelt thanks we pay
in deep humility.
It's God alone whose saving way
has set believers free.
2 Who can condemn, since Christ was dead,
and ever lives to God?
Now our whole debt is fully paid;
he saves us by his blood.
The ransomed hosts in earth and heav'n,
through countless choirs proclaim,
“He has redeemed us; praise be giv'n
To God and to the Lamb.”
3 In all we do, constrained by love,
we’ll joy to him afford,
and to God’s will obedient prove
through Jesus Christ our Lord.
Sing alleluia, and adore
on earth the Lamb once slain,
till we in heav'n shall evermore
exalt his name, Amen.
