Full Text

1. Hallelujah! raise the song, "Jesus Christ is risen:"
Let the Church the note prolong, "Jesus Christ is risen!"
Her loving and triumphant Head,
Captivity has captive led,
And ev'ry foe has vanquished. Hallelujah!

2. Hallelujah! let the cry, "Jesus Christ is risen,"
Wake each harp string of the sky, "Jesus Christ is risen!"
The Sealèd Stone is rolled away,
Death and the grave have lost their prey
For Jesus Christ is ris'n today. Hallelujah!

3. Hallelujah! dry the tear, "Jesus Christ is risen;"
Sound o'er ev'ry silent bier, "Jesus Christ is risen!"
Thrice blessèd pledge, ye mourners keep,
Who for you lost and loved ones weep,
Because He lives, they only sleep. Hallelujah!

4. Hallelujah! let the sound, "Jesus Christ is risen,"
Circulate the world around, "Jesus Christ is risen!"
Soon may the world's great Easter be,
When, her now bondaged children free,
Exultant, Lord, shall reign with Thee. Hallelujah!

In some hymnals, the editors noted that a hymn's author is unknown to them, and so this artificial "person" entry is used to reflect that fact. Obviously, the hymns attributed to "Author Unknown" "Unknown" or "Anonymous" could have been written by many people over a span of many centuries. Go to person page >
