Christ, the Lord, is risen today (The Gospel Hymn Book 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, ye heavens and earth reply.

2 Love's redeeming work is done;
fought the fight, the battle won:
Vain the stone, the watch, the seal,
Christ has burst the gates of hell:

2 Lives again our glorious King!
Where, O death, is now thy sting?
Once he died, our souls to save;
where's thy victory, O grave?

4 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.

5 Hail, the Lord of earth and heaven!
Praise to thee by both be given!
Thee we greet triumphant now;
hail, the Resurrection thou!

Charles Wesley (1707-1788)
