The ris­en, liv­ing Christ
Let ev­ery heart adore!
To Him all praise and glo­ry be!
The Christ of yes­ter­day,
Today and ev­er­more,
The ev­er­last­ing Lord is He.


Glory be and ma­jes­ty,
And praise for­ev­er­more,
To Thee, our king and con­quer­or,
To Thee our migh­ty Prince of Pow­er.

He lives, the ris­en Christ!
He lives no more to die!
He lives eter­nal­ly to reign!
When all the saints re­deemed,
And an­gel hosts on high
Shall swell the hal­le­lu­jah strain.


Exalt the ris­en Christ!
Exalt the liv­ing King!
Exalt the Lord Im­ma­nu­el!
While sweet­ly in our hearts
The East­er ca­rols ring,
Oh, let Him there su­preme­ly dwell.
