CHRIST has risen, the mighty Lion;
hell defeated beneath Him lies;
Christ has risen, the Lamb of mercy
once an innocent sacrifice;
Heaven sings and the earth sings with it,
wave of ocean with joy replies.

Light comes up from the depths abyssal,
brightness streams from the shades of night;
shoots have sprung from the Grain that perished
thrusting out into life and light;
sea and land and the skies above them
all rejoice with the new delight.

Greet the day of the Lord's own making,
day when gladness and grace draw near;
day when blessings from God the Father
drive out every despair and fear;
day in honour above all others,
brightest glory of all our year!

Come then, brothers and sisters, singing
'Christ has risen from death today!'
Sing in hope of a resurrection
when all darkness shall pass away,
and God's people may see His beauty,
face to face in eternal day.
