2  Now the iron bars are broken,
Christ from death to life is born, I Glorious life, and life immortal,
On this holy Easter morn: Christ has triumphed, and we conquer
By His mighty enterprise, We with Him to life eternal
By His resurrection rise.
3  Christ is risen, Christ, the first-fruits
Of the holy harvest-field, Which with all its full abundance
At His second coming yield: Then the golden ears of harvest
Will their heads before Him wave, Ripened by His glorious sunshine
From the furrows of the grave.
4  Christ is risen, we are risen!
Shed upon us heavenly grace, Rain and dew and gleams of glory
From the brightness of Thy face: That, with hearts in heaven dwelling,
We on earth may fruitful be, And by angel-hands be gathered,
And be ever, Lord, with Thee.
5  Alleluia! Alleluia!
Glory be to God on high; Alleluia to the Saviour
Who has won the victory; Alleluia to the Spirit,
Fount of love and sanctity; Alleluia! Alleluia!
To the Triune Majesty.
Bishop Christopher Wordsworth, iS6a
