Christ the Lord Is Risen Today


Christ the Lord Is Risen Today

With exultation

1. Christ the Lord is ris’n today, Alleluia!

Sons of men and angels say, Alleluia!

Raise your joys and triumphs high, Alleluia!

Sing, ye heav’ns, and earth reply, Alleluia!

2. Love’s redeeming work is done, Alleluia!

Fought the fight, the vict’ry won, Alleluia!

Jesus’ agony is o’er, Alleluia!

Darkness veils the earth no more, Alleluia!

3. Lives again our glorious King, Alleluia!

Where, O death, is now thy sting? Alleluia!

Once he died our souls to save, Alleluia!

Where thy victory, O grave? Alleluia!
