Sing, ye heavens and earth reply: Al - le-lu-ia!

Lives again our glorious King, Al - le-lu-ia!
Where, O death, is now thy sting? Al - le-lu-ia!
Dying once He all doth save, Al - le-lu-ia!
Where thy victory, O grave? Al - le-lu-ia!

Love's redeeming work is done, Al - le-lu-ia!
Fought the fight, the battle won, Al - le-lu-ia!
Death in vain forbids Him rise, Al - le-lu-ia!
Christ has opened Paradise, Al - le-lu-ia!

Soar we now where Christ has led, Al - le-lu-ia!
Foll'wing our exalted Head, Al - le-lu-ia!
Made like Him, like Him we rise, Al - le-lu-ia!
Ours the cross, the grave, the skies, Al -le-lu-ia!
