1 Christ is risen!
O’er His foes He reigneth;
Head o’er all things,
He all worlds sustaineth:
Sing hallelujah! Halleluja!
Christ the Lord is risen!

2 Christ is risen!
Now to us is given
Through His sorrows,
Peace, His peace from Heaven!
Sing hallelujah! Halleluja!
Christ the Lord is risen!

3 Christ is risen!
Now His Church inherits
Life eternal
Through her Savior’s merits:
Sing hallelujah! Halleluja!
Christ the Lord is risen!

4 Christ is risen!
Praise and adoration,
Lord, we bring Thee;
And with exultation,
Sing hallelujah! Halleluja!
Christ the Lord is risen!
