Hallelujah! Christ is Risen

Verse 1:
Hallelujah! Hallelujah!
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.

Verse 2:
Christ is risen, Christ the first fruits
Of the holy harvest-field,
Which will all its full abundance,
At His glorious advent, yield;
Then the golden ears of harvest
Will before His presence wave,
Rising in His sunshine joyous,
From the furrows of the grave.

Verse 3:
Hallelujah! Hallelujah!
Glory be to God above!
Hallelujah to the Saviour,
Fount of life and source of love;
Hallelujah to the Spirit;
Let our high ascription be,
Hallelujah, now and ever,
To the blessed Trinity.

Bishop wordsworth, alt./James McGranahan
