Representative Text

1. Ho! triumfa Pask-tagiĝo, Ha--le-lu-ja!
Pro Jesua releviĝo! Ha--le-lu-ja!
Li suferis krucon, morton, Ha--le-lu-ja!
Elaĉetis nian sorton. Ha--le-lu-ja!

2. Kantu ni en laŭda ĥoro, Ha--le-lu-ja!
Al Jesuo, reĝ' de gloro, Ha--le-lu-ja!
Ĉar per kruc' kaj tombo liaj, Ha--le-lu-ja!
Pardoniĝis pekoj niaj. Ha--le-lu-ja!

3. Nun per suferado lia, Ha--le-lu-ja!
Aĉetiĝis savo nia; Ha--le-lu-ja!
Kaj li reĝas en ĉieloj, Ha--le-lu-ja!
Kie kantas la anĝeloj. Ha--le-lu-ja!"
