Christ is risen from the dead,
He has broken Satan’s chain
And lives again our glorious head,
No one need in hell remain
For the grave took Him instead
And He cleansed us from sin’s stain,
Hell no more should be our bed,
Alleluia our refrain,
Alleluia, alleluia, alleluia!
O felix culpa, happy fault,
He has opened heaven’s vault
That with Him we too may rise,
Jesus opened paradise.
Adam’s sin our cause for bliss,
God accomplished all of this.
Now no more may hell appall,
Now no more the grave enthrall,
By the cross He overcame
We now have victory in His Name.
Through the sepulchers the sound
Of trumpets wakes those underground
Rocks are shattered by Amen,
We shout Alleluia then!
Alleluia, Christ is risen,
Indeed He stands, Alleluia!
