Original text and translations
Hallelujah! hallelujah! Hearts to heaven and voices 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.
Christ is risen; we are risen; Shed upon us heavenly grace,
Rain and dew, and dreams of glory From the brightness of Thy face,
That we, with our hearts in heaven, Here on earth may fruitful be,
And by angel hands be gathered, And be ever, Lord, with Thee.
Hallelujah! hallelujah! Glory be to God on high;
Hallelujah to the Saviour, Who has gained the victory;
Hallelujah to the Spirit, Fount of love and sanctity:
Hallelujah! hallelujah To the Triune Majesty!
