Christ the Lord is Risen Today!

April 4, 2010


By Charles Wesley,  1707-1788

        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, our 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, 0 Death, is now thy sting?
        Once He died our souls to save;
        Where thy victory, O Grave?

        5. Soar we now where Christ has led,
        Following our exalted Head.
        Made like Him, like Him we rise;
        Ours the cross, the grave, the skies.

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