Hallelujah, Lo, he wakes

Representative Text

1 Hallelujah! Lo, He wakes!
Lives, o'er death and hell victorious;
Earth in awe with trembling quakes
As the Hero rises glorious;
He who died on Golgotha,
Jesus lives, Hallelujah!
Jesus lives, Hallelujah!

2 Hallelujah! See the tomb,
Ye who o'er His death are pining;
Dry your tears, to joy give room,
While the radiant sun is shining.
Hear the angels' Gloria;
Jesus lives, Hallelujah!
Jesus lives, Hallelujah!

3 Hallelujah! Why seek ye
Yet among the dead the living?
Christ is ris'n in majesty!
Hence away with gloomy grieving,
Join with her of Magdala:
Jesus lives, Hallelujah!
Jesus lives, Hallelujah!

4 Hallelujah then I cry;
Christ too will from death restore me,
Take me to His throne on high,
Whither He has gone before me.
Faith exults: Victoria!
Jesus lives, Hallelujah!
Jesus lives, Hallelujah!
