2. Love's re-deem-ing work is done,   Al- - - - le - lu - ia!
   Fought the fight, the battle won;  Al- - - - le - lu - ia!
   Death in vain for-bids Him rise;   Al- - - - le - lu - ia!
   Christ has o-pened Par-a-dise.     Al- - - - le - lu - ia!

3. Lives a-gain our glo-rious King;   Al- - - - le - lu - ia!
   Where, O death is now thy sting?   Al- - - - le - lu - ia!
   Dy-ing once, He all doth save;     Al- - - - le - lu - ia!
   Where thy vic-to-ry, O grave?      Al- - - - le - lu - ia!

4. Soar we now where Christ has led,  Al- - - - le - lu - ia!
   Fol-lowing our ex-alt-ed Head;     Al- - - - le - lu - ia!
   Made like Him, like Him we rise;   Al- - - - le - lu - ia!
   Ours the cross, the grave, the skies. Al- - - - le - lu- ia!  A-MEN.
