Alleluia! Alleluia! Alleluia! Alleluia!
1 O sons and daughters, let us sing!
The King of Heaven, the glorious King,
O'er death and hell rose triumphing.
2 That night the apostles met in fear;
Among them came their Lord most dear,
And said, “My peace be with you here.”
3 When Thomas first the tidings heard,
How they had seen the risen Lord,
He doubted the disciples’ word.
4 "My pierced side O Thomas, see;
My hands, My feet, I show to thee;
Not faithless, but believing be."
5 No longer Thomas then denied,
He saw the feet, the hands, the side;
"Thou art my Lord and God," he cried.
6 How blest are they who have not seen,
And yet whose faith hath constant been,
For they eternal life shall win.
