Author: John Mason Neale, 1818-66 Hymnal: New English Praise #610 (2006) Hymnal Title: New English Praise Lyrics: 1 Finished is the battle now,
Gloriously crowned the victor’s brow!
Hence with sadness, sing with gladness:
2 After the death that him befell,
Jesus Christ has harrowed hell!
Songs of praising we are raising:
3 On the third morning he arose,
Shining with victory o’er his foes;
Earth is singing, heaven is ringing:
4 Jesus has closed hell’s brazen door,
Heaven is open evermore!
Our adoring praise outpouring:
5 Lord, by thy wounds we call on thee
So from ill death to set us free,
That our living be thanksgiving:
Alleluya, alleluya! Topics: The Christian Year Easter; Easter Vigil ; Easter Day Languages: English Tune Title: SURREXIT
