221. Alleluia, Alleluia! Let the Holy Anthem Rise

1 Alleluia, alleluia!
Let the holy anthem rise,
and the choirs of heaven chant it
in the temple of the skies;
Let the mountains skip with gladness
and the joyful valleys ring
with hosannas in the highest
to our Saviour and our King,
with hosannas in the highest
to our Saviour and our King.

2 Alleluia, alleluia!
Like the sun from out the wave
Christ has risen up in triumph
from the darkness of the grave.
He, the splendour of the nations,
he, the lamp of endless day;
it is Christ, the Lord of glory,
who is risen up today.
It is Christ, the Lord of glory,
who is risen up today.

3 Alleluia, alleluia!
Blessed Jesus, make us rise
from the dust of sin's corruption
to the life that never dies.
May we share with thee thy glory
when the days of time are past,
and the dead shall be awakened
by the trumpet's mighty blast,
and the dead shall be awakened
by the trumpet's mighty blast.
