Rejoice and Sing in Glad Accord

Alleluia, Alleluia, Alleluia!
Rejoice and sing in glad accord!
The King of Glory, Christ the Lord,
Hath now from death Himself restored!
Alleluia!

Alleluia, Alleluia, Alleluia!
On Easter morn, at break of day,
The holy women went their way
To seek the tomb where Jesus lay.
Alleluia!

Alleluia, Alleluia, Alleluia!
A beauteous angel there they see,
Who sweetly spake to tell the three:
“Your risen Lord from death is free!”
Alleluia!

Alleluia, Alleluia, Alleluia!
For this Thine own great day of days
Our hearts and voices, Lord, we raise
To Thee in hymns of grateful praise.
Alleluia!

John G. Hacker, Catholic Hymnal (New York: Schwartz, Kirwin & Fauss, 1920).
