Alleluia, Alleluia.
1  The crown is on the Victor's brow;
Finished is the battle now:
Hence with sadness;
Sing with gladness Alleluia.

2  On that bright morning He arose,
Bright with triumph o'er His foes;
Heaven is ringing,
Earth is singing, Alleluia.

3  Now Jesus Christ hath gone before,
Heaven is open evermore:
Hence with sadness;
Sing with gladness Alleluia.

4  Lord, by Thy love we call on Thee,
So from death to set us free,
That our living
Be thanksgiving, Alleluia.
