Christ the Lord Is Risen Today

Charles Wesley, 1739

Verse 1
Christ, the Lord, is risen today,
Alleluia!
Sons of men and angels say,
Alleluia!
Raise your joys and triumphs high,
Alleluia!
Sing, ye heavens, and earth, reply,
Alleluia!

Verse 2
Love’s redeeming work is done,
Alleluia!
Fought the fight, the battle won,
Alleluia!
Death in vain forbids His rise,
Alleluia!
Christ hath opened paradise,
Alleluia!

Verse 3
Lives again our glorious King,
Alleluia!
Where, O death, is now thy sting?
Alleluia!
Dying once He now doth save,
Alleluia!
Where thy victory, O grave?
Alleluia!

Verse 4
Soar we now where Christ hath led,
Alleluia!
Following our exalted Head,
Alleluia!
Made like Him, like Him we rise,
Alleluia!
Ours the cross, the grave, the skies,
Alleluia!

Verse 5
Hail, the Lord of earth and Heaven,
Alleluia!
Praise to Thee by both be given,
Alleluia!
Thee we greet triumphant now,
Alleluia!
Hail, the resurrection, thou,
Alleluia!
