1 Our Lord Christ hath risen! The tempter is foiled;
his legions are scattered, his strong-holds are spoiled.
Oh, sing hallelujah, oh, sing hallelujah,
oh, sing hallelujah! Be joyful and sing,
our great foe is baffled -- Christ Jesus is King!

2 O death, we defy thee! A stronger than thou
hath entered thy palace; we fear thee not now!
Oh, sing hallelujah, oh, sing hallelujah,
oh, sing hallelujah! Be joyful and sing,
death cannot affright us -- Christ Jesus is King!

3 O sin, thou art vanquished, thy long reign is o'er;
though still thou dost vex us, we dread thee no more.
Oh, sing hallelujah, oh, sing hallelujah,
oh, sing hallelujah! Be joyful and sing,
who now can condemn us? -- Christ Jesus is King!

4 Our Lord Christ hath risen! Day breaketh at last;
the long night of weeping is now wellnigh past.
Oh, sing hallelujah, oh, sing hallelujah,
oh, sing hallelujah! Be joyful and sing,
our foes are all conquered -- Christ Jesus is King!

Plunket, William Conyngham , D.D., 4th Baron Plunket, eldest son of John, 3rd Baron, was born in Dublin, 26 August, 1828; educated at Trinity College, Dublin, where he graduated in 1853; and took Holy Orders in 1857. He was Precentor of St. Patrick's Cathedral, Dublin, from 1869 to 1876, when he was elected Bishop of Meath. In 1884 he was translated to the Archdiocese of Dublin. His hymn “Our Lord Christ hath risen" (Easter), was first published in the Irish Church Hymnal, 1873, in 4 st. of 7 1. It was written for that collection in 1873, to suit the tune "O Ursprung des Lebens," by T. Selle. So far as we are aware this is Lord Plunket's only contribution to hymnody.
