110. Jesus Christ is risen to-day, Alleluya!

1 Jesus Christ is risen to-day, Alleluya!
Our triumphant holy day, Alleluya!
Who did once, upon the Cross, Alleluya!
Suffer to redeem our loss. Alleluya!

2 Hymns of praise then let us sing, Alleluya!
Unto Christ, our heavenly King, Alleluya!
Who endured the Cross and grave, Alleluya!
Sinners to redeem and save. Alleluya!

3 But the pains that he endured Alleluya!
Our salvation have procured; Alleluya!
Now above the sky he’s King, Alleluya!
Where the angels ever sing. Alleluya!
