Jesus Christ is Risen Today


Jesus Christ is risen today, Alleluia! our triumphant holy day, Alleluia!
Who did once, upon the cross, Alleluia! suffer to redeem our loss, Alleluia!


Hymns of praise then let us sing, Alleluia! unto Christ, our heavenly King, Alleluia!
Who endured the cross and grave, Alleluia! sinners to redeem and save, Alleluia!


But the pains which he endured, Alleluia! our salvation have procured, Alleluia!
Now above the sky hes king, Alleluia! where the angels ever sing, Alleluia!


Sing we to our God above, Alleluia! praise eternal as his love, Alleluia!
Praise him, all ye heavenly host, Alleluia! Father, Son, and Holy Ghost, Alleluia!

Be Joyful, Mary, Heavenly Queen


Be joyful, Mary, heav'nly queen, Gaude, Maria:
Your grief is changed to joy serene, Alleluia, Laetare, O Maria!

The Son you bore by heaven's grace, Gaude, Maria:
Did all our guilt and sin efface, Alleluia, Laetare, O Maria!

The Lord is risen from the dead, Gaude, Maria:
He rose in glory as He said, Alleluia, Laetare, O Maria!

Then pray to God, O Virgin fair, Gaude, Maria:

That He our souls to heaven bear, Alleluia! Laetare, O Maria!
