lyrics

D G Bm
Christ the Lord is risen again!
G A D
Christ has broken ev'ry chain!
D G D - A
Hark, the angels shout for joy,
Bm G D
Singing evermore on high,
He who gave for us His life,
Who for us endured the strife,
Is our Paschal Lamb to-day!
We too sing for joy, and say:
Em - Bm G - D Em - Bm G - D
Hallelujah! Hallelujah! Hallelujah, Hallelu!
He who bore all pain and loss
Comfortless upon the cross,
Lives in glory now on high,
Pleads for us and hears our cry:
Hallelujah! Hallelujah! Hallelujah, Hallelu!
A Bm
He who slumber'd in the grave
G D
Is exalted to save;
A Bm
Now throughout the world we sing
G D
That the Lamb is King!
Em Bm G D
The Lamb is King! The Lamb is King!
He whose path no records tell,
Who descended into hell,
Who the strong man arm'd hath bound,
Now in highest heaven is crown'd:
Hallelujah! Hallelujah! Hallelujah, Hallelu!
Thou our Paschal Lamb indeed,
Christ, to-day Thy people feed;
Take our sins and guilt away,
That we all may sing for thee,
Hallelujah! Hallelujah! Hallelujah, Hallelu!
