The Lord hath risen, sing hallelujah

Representative Text

1 The Lord hath risen, sing hallelujah!
Hath ris’n to die no more;
Our king hath won the hard fought battle,
And opened death’s dark door.

Refrain:
Hallelujah! Hallelujah!
Christ the Lord hath risen from the dead,
Let all the earth sing hallelujah!
For Christ hath risen!
Hath risen from the dead.

2 The Lord hath risen, sing hallelujah!
Our captain from the skies;
His loyal hosts still beckon upward,
And we with Him shall rise. [Refrain]

3 The Lord hath risen, sing hallelujah!
A shining path we tread,
In triumph thro’ death’s dark dominions,
With Christ our living head. [Refrain]

4 The Lord hath risen, sing hallelujah!
To Christ the conqueror sing!
He lives, all power to Him is given—
All glory to our king. [Refrain]
