His Resurrection

7s.

1
Christ, the Lord, is risen today,
Sons of men and angels say,
Raise your joys and triumphs high;
Sing, ye heavens, and earth reply.

2
Love’s redeeming work is done;
Fought the fight, the battle won,
Lo! the sun’s eclipse is o’er;
Lo! he sets in blood no more!

3
Vain the stone, the watch, the seal;
Christ has burst the gates of hell;
Death in vain forbids His rise;
Christ has opened paradise.

4
Lives again our glorious King;
Where, O Death, is now thy sting?
Once He died our souls to save;
Where’s thy victory, boasting Grave?

5
Hail! the Lord of earth and heaven!
Praise to Thee by both be given!
Thee we greet, triumphant now!
Hail, the Resurrection Thou!

6
Christ, the Lord, is risen today,
Sons of men and angels say,
Raise your joys and triumphs high;
Sing, ye heavens, and earth reply.
