    Lyrics

    Christ Triumphant (Cristo Trionfante)
    Lyrics by G. R. Woodward *
    Music by Pietro A. Yon

    Rejoice, good Christians, raise the strain;
    The Crucified is risen:
    The soldier-guard was all in vain;
    The Lord hath burst his prison;

    Seal, napkin, earthquake, moon by night
    Bear witness, with the Angels bright
    To Jesu’s Resurrection. Alleluia.

    This holiest day, sing high, sing low,
    And let the merry anthem flow,
    Benedicamus Domino, Alleluia.

    O mighty conquerer in the strife,
    Thine enemies be scatter’d:
    Thy springing forth from death to life
    The gates of hell hath shatter’d:

    From Pharao’s yoke this victory
    Hath set thy captive people free:
    Hosanna in the highest. Alleluia.

    Alleluia. Alleluia. Alleluia.

    * from “Songs of Syon”
