1 Christ is risen from the dead,
Victor over mortal sin;
Ris’n to save the sons of men,
If they only trust in Him.

Refrain:
Joy is come! Sin is slain!
Wipe away those tears of sorrow,
Ring the bells, of Easter day,
Anthems from the angels borrow,
Ring the bells, of Easter day,
Anthems from the angels borrow.

2 Christ is risen from the dead,
Heav’n and earth repeat the strain,
Night is vanished, morning breaks,
Jesus Christ His triumph claims. [Refrain]

3 Christ is risen from the dead,
Welcomed by a heav’nly throng,
Angel hosts from realms on high,
Swell the glad triumphant song. [Refrain]
