Christ’s Resurrection. Luke 24. 34; Ps. 16. 10; Acts 13. 34

J. Hart     S.M.

1
Christians, dismiss your fear;
Let hope and joy succeed;
The great good news with gladness hear,
The Lord is risen indeed.

2
The shades of death withdrawn,
His eyes their beams display;
So wakes the sun, when rosy dawn
Unbars the gates of day.

3
The promise is fulfilled;
Salvation’s work is done;
Justice with mercy’s reconciled,
And God has raised his Son.

4
He quits the dark abode,
From all corruption free;
The holy, harmless Child of God
Could no corruption see.

5
[Angels, with saints above,
The rising Victor sing;
And all the blissful seats of love
With loud hosannas ring.

6
Ye pilgrims, too, below,
Your hearts and voices raise;
Let every breast with gladness glow,
And every mouth sing praise.]

7
My soul, thy Saviour laud,
Who all thy sorrows bore;
Who died for sin, but lives to God,
And lives to die no more.

8
His death procured thy peace,
His resurrection’s thine;
Believe; receive the full release;
’Tis signed with blood divine.
