Our Lord is risen from the dead!
Our Jesus has gone up on high!
The powers of hell are captive led,
Dragged to the portals of the sky;
There his triumphal chariot waits,
And angels praise the glorious day:
Lift up your heads, you heavenly gates;
You everlasting doors, give way!
Loud shouts of acclamation sound
And bold triumphant songs begin;
He comes with praise and honour crowned;
Receive the King of glory in!
Who is this King of glory? Who?
The Lord that all our foes o'ercame;
The world, sin, death, he overthrew;
And Jesus is the conqueror's name.
Let us with heaven unified
Our songs of adoration sing,
Unlock the gates and swing them wide
To welcome our victorious King!
Who is the King of Glory? Who?
The Lord of glorious power possessed
The King of saints and angels, too
God over all, forever blessed.
