Description

Festival Easter anthem for SATB choir and organ. Text by Christopher Wordsworth. Optional brass quintet (2 trumpets in B-flat, horn in F, trombone, tuba) and timpani.

Alleluia, alleluia! Hearts to heav'n 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.

Christ is risen, Christ, the first fruits of the holy harvest field,
which will all its full abundance at his second coming yield:
then the golden ears of harvest will their heads before him wave,
ripened by his glorious sunshine from the furrows of the grave.

Christ is risen, we are risen! Shed upon us heav'nly grace,
rain and dew and gleams of glory from the brightness of thy face;
That we, with our hearts in heaven, here on earth may fruitful be,
and by angel hands be gathered, and be ever, Lord, with thee.

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.
