520. Alleluia! Alleluia

8.7.8.7.D

Lux Eoi:

Arthur S. Sullivan, 1874

Christopher Wordsworth, 1872

Alleluia! Alleluia!

Hearts and voices heavenward raise:

Sing to God a hymn of gladness,

Sing to God a hymn of praise:

He, who on the cross a victim,

For the world's salvation bled,

Jesus Christ, the King of glory,

Now is risen from the dead.

Now the iron bars are broken,

Christ from death to life is born,

Glorious life, and life immortal,

On this holy Easter morn:

Christ has triumphed, and we conquer

By his mighty enterprise,

We with him to life eternal

By his resurrection rise.

476

Christ is risen, Christ, the first-fruits

Of the holy harvest-field,

Which will all its full abundance

At his second coming yield:

Then the golden ears of harvest

Will their heads before him wave,

Ripened by his glorious sunshine

From the furrows of the grave.

Christ is risen, we are risen!

Shed upon us heavenly grace,

Rain and dew and gleams of glory

From the brightness of thy face:

That, with hearts in heaven dwelling,

We on earth may fruitful be,

And by angel hands be gathered,

And be ever, Lord, with thee.

Alleluia! Alleluia!

Glory be to God on high;

Alleluia to the Savior

Who has won the victory;

Alleluia to the Spirit,

Fount of love and sanctity;

Alleluia! Alleluia!

To the Triune Majesty.

Amen.
