403. Christ, the Lord, Is Risen Today

1 Christ the Lord, is ris'n today: Alleluia!
All on earth with angels say: Alleluia!
Raise your joys and triumphs high: Alleluia!
Sing, O heav'ns, and earth reply: Alleluia!

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

3 Love's redeeming work is done; Alleluia!
Fought the fight, the battle won; Alleluia!
Death in vain forbids him rise; Alleluia!
Christ has opened paradise. Alleluia!

4 Soar we now where Christ has led, Alleluia!
Foll'wing our exalted Head; Alleluia!
Made like him, like him we rise: Alleluia!
Ours the cross, the grave, the skies. Alleluia!
