1.  Alleluia! Alleluia! Alleluia! Alleluia!
    O sons and daughters, let us sing!

    O'er death and hell rose triumphing.
    Alleluia! Alleluia!

2.  That Easter morn, at break of day,
    The faithful women went their way
    To seek the tomb where Jesus lay.
    Alleluia! Alleluia!

3.  An angel clad in white they see,
    Who sat and spoke unto the three,
    "Your Lord goes on to Galilee."
    Alleluia! Alleluia!

4.  That night the apostles met in fear;
    Among them came their Lord most dear,
    And said, "My peace be with you here."
    Alleluia! Alleluia!

    To God your hearts and voices raise,
    In laud and jubilee and praise.
    Alleluia! Alleluia!
