Original text and translations

English.png English text

The Lord is risen indeed:
now is his work performed;
now is the mighty captive freed,
and death’s strong castle stormed.

The Lord is risen indeed:
then hell has lost his prey;
with him is risen the ransomed seed
to reign in endless day.

The Lord is risen indeed:
he lives, to die no more;
he lives, the sinner’s cause to plead,
whose curse and shame be bore.

The Lord is risen indeed:
attending angels, hear!
up to the courts of heaven with speed
the joyful tidings bear.

Then take your golden lyres,
and strike each cheerful chord;
join, all ye bright celestial choirs,
to sing our risen Lord.
