Lyrics

Christ has con­quered death for­ev­er,
Hallelujah, sing His praise.
Nothing from His love shall sev­er,
Hallelujah, sing His praise.

Refrain

Hallelujah, sing His prais­es,
Life, eter­nal life, He gives;
We shall reign with Him for­ev­er,
We shall live be­cause He lives.

Earth and air, and heav­ing ocean,
Show His won­drous pow­er and might;
Rending rocks, in wild com­mo­tion,
Show His won­drous pow­er and might.

Refrain

Flowers in ten­der beau­ty grow­ing,
Tell the sto­ry o’er and o’er;
Sheaves that rip­en after sow­ing,
Tell the sto­ry o’er and o’er.

Refrain

Jesus lives, o’er death vic­to­ri­ous;
Shout His prais­es ev­e­rmore;
We shall see His face all glo­ri­ous,
Shout His prais­es ev­er­more.
