good basic arrangement of song, different lyrics

The sample first page gives you an accurate feel for the entire arrangement. But aside from "Christ, the Lord, is risen today" and "alleluia" the rest of the lyrics were totally unfamiliar. They are not the common 4 verses in hymnals. I found some of the lyrics on cyberhymnal, at the bottom of the list of verses. The first verse in this arrangement is a combination of two different verses, that is especially annoying because that is the verse everyone knows. It should say: Christ the Lord is risen today Alleluia! Sons of men and angels say: Alleluia! Raise your joys and triumphs high. Alleluia! Sing, ye heavens and earth reply: Alleluia! Instead it says: Christ the Lord is risen today, Alleluia! Our triumphant holy day, Alleluia! Who did once upon the cross, Alleluia! Suffer to redeem our loss. Alleluia!
