Sacred Songs and Solos Lyrics
First Line: Hallelujah ! hallelujah ,
Hallelujah ! hallelujah !
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 Christ is risen, Christ the first-fruits
Of the holy harvest-field ; . . .
Which will all its full abundance
At His glorious advent yield; . . .
Then the golden ears of harvest
Will their heads before Him wave,
Ripened by His glorious sunshine
From the furrows of the grave.
3 Hallelujah ! hallelujah !
Glory be to God on high ! . . .
Hallelujah to the Saviour,
Who has gained the victory; . . .
Hallelujah to the Spirit;
Let our high ascriptions be,
Hallelujah, now and ever,
To the blessed Trinity !
