Jesus Christ is Risen Today


Jesus Christ is risen today, Alleluia!    our triumphant holy day, Alleluia!
Who did once, upon the cross, Alleluia!   suffer to redeem our loss, Alleluia!


Hymns of praise then let us sing, Alleluia!   unto Christ, our heavenly King, Alleluia!
Who endured the cross and grave, Alleluia!   sinners to redeem and save, Alleluia!


But the pains which he endured, Alleluia!   our salvation have procured, Alleluia!
Now above the sky he’s king, Alleluia!   where the angels ever sing, Alleluia!


Sing we to our God above, Alleluia!   praise eternal as his love, Alleluia!
Praise him, all ye heavenly host, Alleluia!   Father, Son, and Holy Ghost, Alleluia!

The Day of Resurrection


The day of resurrection! Earth, tell it out abroad;
The Passover of gladness, the Passover of God.
From death to life eternal, from earth unto the sky,
Our Christ hath brought us over, with hymns of victory.

Our hearts be pure from evil, that we may see aright
The Lord in rays eternal of resurrection light;
And listening to His accents, may hear, so calm and plain,
His own “All hail!” and, hearing, may raise the victor strain.


Now let the heavens be joyful! Let earth the song begin!
Let the round world keep triumph, and all that is therein!
Let all things seen and unseen their notes in gladness blend,
For Christ the Lord hath risen, our joy that hath no end.
