Alleluia! Alleluia!

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 one the cross as Savior
For the world’s salvation bled,
Jesus Christ, the King of Glory,
Now is risen from the dead.

Now the iron bars are broken,
Christ from death to life is born,
Glorious life, and life immortal
On this resurrection morn;
Christ has triumphed and we conquer
By his mighty enterprise,
We with him to life eternal
By his resurrection rise.
