Christ is risen from the grave,
Christ, the Lamb for sinners slain,
He who died the church to save,
Is returned to life again.
Early from the rocky tomb,
Where His lifeless form they laid,
See, the Prince of life is come;
Christ is risen from the dead.
Shepherd of His ransomed sheep,
Now He lives, to die no more;
Death could not the Saviour keep,
When His work of love was o’er.
Now they need not fear the grave,
Though they die and turn to dust,
Whom the grace of Christ doth save;
Christ is risen, in whom they trust.
