Jesus Christ from death hath risen

Jesus Christ from death hath risen!
Lo, his Godhead bursts the prison,
while his Manhood passes free,
vanquishing our misery:
risen with him to salvation
through his self-humiliation,
we may share his victory.

Far be sorrow, tears and sadness!
See the dayspring of our gladness!
Satan's slaves no more are we,
children by the Son set free:
rise, for Life with death hath striven,
all the snares of hell are riven;
rise and claim the victory.
