Christ is risen! Christ is risen!
And hath conquered the grave;
Christ is risen! Christ is risen!
And hath conquered the grave;
Then break forth into singing,
Then break forth into singing,
Then break forth into singing, ye people!
Hallelujah! Hallelujah!
Christ hath risen indeed!
Rejoice! Rejoice!
Christ is risen indeed!
Sing, ye people, in loud anthems of praise,
Hallelujah! Christ is risen!
is risen triumphant o’er death and the grave!
Amen.
