Christ’s Resurrection. Luke 24. 4-7; 1 Pet. 1. 3; Isa. 42. 21

J. Hart       L.M.

1
Uprising from the darksome tomb,
See the victorious Jesus come;
The Almighty Prisoner quits the prison,
And angels tell, The Lord is risen.

2
Ye guilty souls, that groan and grieve,
Hear the glad tidings, hear and live!
God’s righteous law is satisfied,
And justice now is on your side.

3
Your Surety, thus released by God,
Pleads the rich ransom of his blood;
No new demand, no bar remains,
But mercy now triumphant reigns.

4
Believers, hail your rising Head,
The first-begotten from the dead;
Your resurrection’s sure, through his,
To endless life and boundless bliss!
