Lyrics

He is ris­en—day of wonder,
Day when death itself was slain!
Like a grandly swelling thunder
Sounds the word, He lives again.

Refrain

Hallelujah! hallelujah!
Praises to the Lamb we sing,
Hallelujah! hallelujah!
Hail to our vic­to­ri­ous king!

See His royal banner waving,
On the bloodstained field of strife!
There, for humblest hearts that love Him,
Jesus bought eter­nal life.

Refrain

Blessèd Je­sus, living Sav­ior,
Thou art ris­en from the grave;
We are trusting in Thy favor;
Thou art mighty now to save.
