Text by R.G. Huff

Christians lift your singing voices,
Alleluia, alleluia!
As the church in Christ rejoices,
Alleluia, alleluia!

Alleluia, alleluia!
Welcome Easter morning.
Alleluia, alleluia!
Glory to the risen King!

Come in joyful celebration,
Alleluia, alleluia!
Join the global congregation.
Alleluia, alleluia!

There is no need for weeping.
We’re safe in heaven’s keeping.
Deep inside our hearts are leaping:
He is alive! Christ is alive!

Alleluia, alleluia!
