Christ, the Lord, is risen today, Hallelujah! (Christian Hymns Version)

Copy Text to Clipboard
1 Christ, the Lord, is risen today, 
Sons of men and angels say:
raise your joys and triumphs high;
sing, O 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 him rise;
Christ has opened paradise.

4 Lives again our glorious King!
'Where, O death, is now your sting?'
Once he died our souls to save;
'Where's your victory, boasting 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 King of glory! Soul of bliss!
Everlasting life is this,
you to know, your power to prove,
thus to sing, and thus to love.

Charles Wesley (1707–1788)
