Default Re: Easter Hymn

This one fits Beethoven's 'Ode to Joy' tune (Words by Wordsworth)

1 Alleluia, alleluia!
Hearts to heaven and voices raise:
sing to God a hymn of gladness,
sing to God a hymn of praise;
he who on the cross a victim
for the world's salvation bled,
Jesus Christ, the King of glory,
now is risen from the dead.

2 Alleluia, Christ is risen!
Death at last has met defeat:
see the ancient powers of evil
in confusion and retreat:
once he died, and once was buried:
now he lives forevermore,
Jesus Christ the world's Redeemer,
whom we worship and adore.

3 Christ is risen, we are risen!
Set your hearts on things above:
there in all the Father's glory
lives and reigns our King of love;
hear the word of peace he brings us,
see his wounded hands and side;
now let every wrong be ended,
every sin be crucified.

4 Alleluia, alleluia!
Glory be to God on high!
Alleluia to the Savior
who has gained the victory!
Alleluia to the Spirit,
fount of love and sanctity!
Alleluia, alleluia!
to the Triune Majesty!
Omnipotens Deus, cui omne cor patet et cui omnes affectus animorum cogniti sunt, et quem nihil latet, purifica cogitationes cordium nostrorum, ut per inspirationem Sancti Spiritus te ex animo amenus, et debita veneratione celebramus Nomen tuum sanctum, Per Jesum Christum Dominum nostrum. BCP 1560

I love that hymn. We sing it every Easter Sunday as the recessional. Here's a video:
Christ Is Risen - Indeed, He Is Risen!
