1. Risen is our glorious king,
Hallelujah! hallelujah!
Shout till all the earth shall ring—
Hallelujah! hallelujah!
Pealing thro’ the aisles of time,
Hear the Easter chant sublime,
Sounding forth in joyful chime—
Hallelujah! hallelujah!

Risen! risen evermore!
Shout the news from shore to shore!
Christ the Mighty One adore,
Hallelujah! hallelujah!

2. Swell the strains of victory,
Hallelujah! hallelujah!
Life eternal we shall see,
Hallelujah! hallelujah!
Fill with praises every way,
Hail this resurrection day,
Crown the Christ who lives for aye,
Hallelujah! hallelujah! [Refrain]

3. Risen is our glorious king,
Hallelujah! hallelujah!
From the tomb glad hope to spring,
Hallelujah! hallelujah!
Shout aloud, O starry train,
Lives the Lord who once was slain;
Now triumphant He shall reign,
Hallelujah! hallelujah! [Refrain]

Lizzie De Armond was a prolific writer of children's hymns, recitations and exercises. When she was twelve years old her first poem was published in the Germantown, Pa. Telegraph, however, it was not until she was a widow with eight children to support that she started writing in earnest. She wrote articles, librettos, nature stories and other works, as well as hymns.
