Title: Alleluia, Christ is risen
Composer: Dudley Buck
Original text and translations
1. Alleluia! Alleluia!
Hearts to heav'n and voices raise,
Sing to God a hymn of gladness,
Sing to God a hymn of praise;
He who on the cross a victim
for the world's salvation bled,
Jesus Christ, the King of Glory,
Now is risen from the dead.
2. Now the prison bars are broken,
Christ from death to life is born,
Glorious life, and life immortal,
On the holy Easter morn:
Christ has triumphed, and we conquer;
By his mighty enterprise,
We with Him to life eternal
By His resurrection rise.
3. Christ is risen! we are risen!
Shed upon us heav'nly grace
Rain and dew and gleams of glory
From the brightness of thy face,
That we, with our hearts in heaven,
Here on earth may fruitful be,
And by angelhands be gathered,
And be ever, Lord, with Thee.
4. Alleluia! Alleluia!
Glory be to God on high!
Alleluia to the Saviour,
Who has gained the victory;
Alleluia to the Spirit,
Fount of love and sanctity;
To the Triune Majesty!
