Oh where is now thy vic­to­ry? (repeat)

Jesus hath aris­en,
He hath burst His three days pri­son;
Praise Him, praise the Sav­ior,
Who hath con­quered death and hell.
Praise thou, praise the migh­ty God,
Let your prais­es ev­er loud­ly swell,
Praise on earth, and praise ye hea­ven­ly host,
Father, Son, and Ho­ly Ghost. (repeat)

Shout forth the tid­ings,
Proclaim the news o’er land and sea;
Shout forth the tid­ings,
For Christ hath won the vi­cto­ry.
