“CHRIST THE LORD IS RISEN TO-DAY!”
1. “Christ the Lord is risen to-day Hallelaja!
Sons of men and angels say”
Rise your joy and triumph high,
Sing, ye heavens ! and earth, reply’s
2. Love’s redeeming work is done:
Fought the fight, the battle won:
Lo ! our Sun’s ellipse is O’ver:
Lo ! He sets in blood no more:
3. Vain the stone, the watch, the seal,
Christ halth burst the gates of hell;
Death in vain forbids His rise,
Christ hath 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. King of glory! Soul of bliss!
Everlasting life is this:
Thee to know, Thy power to prove,
Thus to sing, and thus to love:
