14522. He Is Risen

1 He is risen! He is risen!
From the darkness of the tomb;
Cease thy strife, Oh! heart, and listen;
Open wide and give Him room.
Lo! the mighty rock is riven;
At the door the angels sing,
Hallelujah! Hallelujah!
Risen Lord and mighty King!

O my heart, be still and listen,
Let my lips the glad news sing:
He is risen—He is risen!
Jesus, Savior, Lord and King!

2 I am one with God, the Father!
Were the words divinely spoke.
Even loving hearts were faithless,
’Till that Easter morning broke;
Then what wonder, joy and rapture
Flooded every heart that morn;
Faith had ripened to fruition,
From the grave rose hope, reborn. [Refrain]

3 Glory be to God the Father!
Glory be to Christ the Son!
Glory to the Holy Spirit,
Now I know the victory won!
On my heart the resurrection,
Now I feel the touch divine,
On my soul the glory anthem,
Christ is risen—Christ is mine! [Refrain]
