1. "Christ the Lord is risen today!" Alleluia! All creation, join to say; Alleluia! Raise your joys and triumphs high; Alleluia! Sing, O heavens, and earth reply, Alleluia! 2. Love's redeeming work is done, Alleluia! Fought the fight, the battle won; Alleluia! Death in vain forbids Him rise; Alleluia! Christ has opened paradise. Alleluia! 3. Lives again our glorious King; Alleluia! Where, O death, is now your sting? Alleluia! Jesus died, our souls to save; Alleluia! Where your victory, O grave? Alleluia! 4. Hail, the Lord of earth and heaven! Alleluia! Praise to You by both be given; Alleluia! Every knee to You shall bow, Alleluia! Risen Christ, triumphant now. Alleluia!
