2 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 conquier

By His mighty enterprise, We with Him to life eternal

By His resurrection rise. 3 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.

4 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. 5 Alleluia! Alleluia!

Glory be to God on high;
Alleluia to the Saviour

Who has won the victory;
Alleluia to the Spirit,

Fount of love and sanctity;
Alleluia! Alleluia!
To the Triune Majesty. Amen.

4 Neither might the gates of death,

Nor the tomb's dark portal,
Nor the watchers, nor the seal,

Hold Thee as a mortal:
But to-day amidst Thine own

Thou didst stand, bestowing
That Thy peace which evermore

Passeth human knowing. Amen.

Our Christ hath brought us 0 - ver, With hymns of vic - to

A. men.

2 Our hearts be pure from evil,

That we may see aright
The Lord in rays eternal

Of resurrection-light;
And, listening to His accents,

May hear, so calm and plain His own "All hail!" and hearing,

May raise the victor-strain.

3 Now let the heavens be joyful,

Let earth her song begin,
The round world keep high triumph,

And all that is therein;
Let all things seen and unseen,

Their notes together blend
For Christ the Lord is risen,
Our Joy that hath no end. Amen.

2 Where the Paschal blood is poured, Now no more can death appall,

Death's dark angel sheathes his sword; Now no more the grave enthrall;
Israel's hosts triumphant go

Thou hast opened Paradise,
Through the wave that drowns the foe. And in Thee Thy saints shall rise.
Praise we Christ, Whose blood was shed,

Easter triumph, Easter joy, Paschal Victim, Paschal bread;

Sin alone can this destroy; With sincerity and love

From sin's power do Thou set free Eat we manna from above.

Souls new-born, O Lord, in Thee. 3 Mighty Victim from the sky,

Hymns of glory and of praise, Hell's fierce powers beneath Thee lie; Risen Lord, to Thee we raise; Thou hast conquered in the fight,

Holy Father, praise to Thee, Thou hast brought us life and light: With the Spirit, ever be. Amen.
