He is Risen Indeed!
The words of this well-known hymn, originally written by Charles Wesley in the 1700s, capture the exhilaration we feel on Easter Sunday when we celebrate Christ’s victory over sin and death by his own death and resurrection.
It is a rousing song of joy and victory, sung here by the Salvation Army choir.
May the Lord bless you as you read or listen to this wonderful hymn today.
1 Christ the Lord is risen today, Alleluia!
Earth and heaven in chorus say, Alleluia!
Raise your joys and triumphs high, Alleluia!
Sing, ye heavens, and earth reply, Alleluia!
2 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!
3 Lives again our glorious King, Alleluia!
Where, O death, is now thy sting? Alleluia!
Once he died our souls to save, Alleluia!
Where’s thy victory, boasting grave? Alleluia!
4 Soar we now where Christ has led, Alleluia!
Following our exalted Head, Alleluia!
Made like him, like him we rise, Alleluia!
Ours the cross, the grave, the skies, Alleluia!
