alleluia, alleluiaNow is Christ risen from the dead

Now is Christ risen from the dead,
now are the powers of darkness fled,
alleluia, alleluia!
Gone is the night of sin and gloom,
Jesus is risen from the tomb.
Alleluia, alleluia,
alleluia, alleluia,
alleluia!

Now is Christ risen from the dead,
empty there lies his narrow bed,
alleluia, alleluia!
Christ and his cross have won the day,
come, see the grave in which he lay.
Alleluia, alleluia,
alleluia, alleluia,
alleluia!

Now is Christ risen from the dead,
He who his blood for sinners shed,
alleluia, alleluia!
In him who died to bear our sins
our resurrection-life begins.
Alleluia, alleluia,
alleluia, alleluia,
alleluia!

Now is Christ risen from the dead,
risen and reigning as he said,
alleluia, alleluia!
Praise him who light and life restored,
praise him, our ever-lasting Lord!
Alleluia, alleluia,
alleluia, alleluia,
alleluia!

Alleluia alleluia,

give thanks to the risen Lord!

Alleluia alleluia,

give praise to His name.

 

Jesus is Lord of all the earth.

He is the King of creation.

Spread the good news through all the earth,

Jesus has died and has risen.

 

We have been crucified with Christ 

now we shall live forever.

God has proclaimed the just reward 

life for all men, alleluia!

 

Come let us praise the Living God,

Joyfully sing to our Saviour!
