Lives again our glorious King, Alleluia

Where, O death, is now thy sting? Alleluia

Once He died, our souls to save, Alleluia

Where’s thy victory, boasting grave? Alleluia



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



Soar we now where Christ has led, Alleluia

Following our exalted head, Alleluia

Made like Him, like Him we rise, Alleluia

Ours the cross, the grave, the skies, Alleluia
