CHRIST the Lord is risen to-day!

Sons of men and angels say,

Raise your joys and triumphs high;

Sing, you heavens, and earth reply.

Love's redeeming work is done-

Fought the fight-the battle won-

Lo! the sun's eclipse is o'er;

Lo! he sets in blood no more.

Vain the stone, the watch, the seal!

Christ has burst the gates of hell;

Death in vain forbids his rise:

Christ has opened Paradise.

Lives again our glorious King:

Where, O death, is now thy sting?

Once he died our souls to save!

Where's thy vict'ry, boasting grave?

Soar we now where Christ has led,

Following our exalted Head;

Made like him, like him we rise-

Ours the cross, the grave, the skies?

What though once we perished all,

Partners of our parents' fall,

Second life we now receive,

In our heavenly Adam live.

Hail, thou Lord of earth and heaven,

Praise to thee by both be given!

Thee we greet triumphant now;

Hail the Resurrection thou!
