Lyrics

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.

Refrain

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.

Refrain

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.
