1 All the doubting and dejection
Of our trembling hearts have ceased;
’Tis His day of resurrection,
Let us rise and keep the feast.
Gratefully our hearts adore Him,
As His light once more appears,
Bowing down in joy before Him,
Rising up from grief and tears.

Christ is risen, alleluia!
Risen our victorious head!
Sing His praises! alleluia!
Christ is risen from the dead!

2 Christ is risen! henceforth never
Death or hell shall us enthrall;
Be with Christ, in Him for ever
We have triumphed over all.
Death and hell before Him bending,
He doth rise the victor now;
Angels on His steps attending,
Glory round His wounded brow. [Refrain]
