Transcribed lyrics (not listed in original)

Jesus Christ is Risen to day Halle-Halleluiah
Our triumphant Holyday Halle-Halleluiah
Who so lately on the Cross Halle-Halleluiah
Suffer'd to redeem our loss Halle Halleluiah.

FH Sculpsit

2.

HAst ye Females from your Fright, Hall. &c.
Take to Galile your Flight: Hall.
To his sad Disciples say, Hall.
Jesus Christ is Risen to Day. Hall.

3.

In our Paschal Joy and Feast. Hall.
Let the Lord of Life be blest, Hall.
Let the Holy Trine be prais'd, Hall.
And thankful Hearts to Heaven be rais'd. Hall.
