Description

SATB a cappella with optional keyboard. Text from Lyra Davidica (1708) with new (strophic) music. Perfect for an Easter introit, or a short anthem. Rhythmic and exciting.

Alleluia
Jesus Christ is ris'n today
Our triumphant holy day,
Who did once upon the cross,
Suffer to redeem our loss.

Hymns of praise then let us sing
Unto Christ, our heavenly King.
Who endured the Cross and grave,
Sinners to redeem and save.

But the pains that he endured
Our salvation have procured;
Now above the sky he's King,
Where the angels ever sing.
Alleluia.
