16174. Hallelujah! Song of Triumph

1 Hallelujah! song of tri­umph,
Triumph ov­er death and hell;
Hallelujah! song of tri­umph,
Greater far than tongue may tell.

2 Hallelujah! song of tri­umph,
Christ, who came the lost to save,
Hallelujah! now hath ris­en,
Mighty Con­quer­or o’er the grave.

3 Hallelujah! Ho­ly an­gels
Came and rolled away the stone;
Hallelujah! now no long­er
Death can claim Him for his own.

4 Hallelujah! Christ hath brok­en
Bars that none could break before;
Hallelujah! Death de­feat­ed,
Sinks to rise again no more.

5 Hallelujah! song of tri­umph,
Loud through all cre­ation rolls;
Hallelujah! men and an­gels
Sing the song of ran­somed souls.
