Hallelujah, He is Risen!

It seemed fitting to write an Easter hymn this week. So here's my new offering, written to the tune of the well-known hymn "Revive Us Again." 

Hallelujah, He is Risen!

Oh, lift up your voice to proclaim Jesus' praise,
And let us declare now the triumph of grace!

     Hallelujah, he is risen! He is risen indeed!
    Hallelujah, over death he has won victory!

He bore all our sins as he suffered and bled,
But sin could not hold him; he rose from the dead!
  
     Hallelujah, he is risen! He is risen indeed!
    Hallelujah, over death he has won victory!

The tomb is laid bare, and the stone rolled away;
Our Lord is alive and is reigning today!

     Hallelujah, he is risen! He is risen indeed!
    Hallelujah, over death he has won victory!

Death, where is your sting? Where the grave's victory?
Yes, Christ has consigned them to endless defeat!

     Hallelujah, he is risen! He is risen indeed!
    Hallelujah, over death he has won victory!

With angels and saints, with creation we praise
The all-conq'ring Savior, the Lamb who was slain!

     Hallelujah, he is risen! He is risen indeed!
    Hallelujah, over death he has won victory!
