Now let us be exceeding glad,
Our hearts no longer need be sad,
Hallelujah!

Christ hath o'er come the tomb's dark night,
The world is bathed in Easter light,
Hallelujah!

His stripes shall heal us from our sin,
His cross forgiveness for us win,
Hallelujah!

His resurrection from the grave,
From death and hell our souls shall save,
Hallelujah!

Then let us sing a joy ous lay,
Christ our dear Lord is ris'n to day;
Hallelujah!

And all man kind in Him newborn,
May share the Resurrection Morn,
Hallelujah!
