Christ the Lord is risen today

Christ the Lord is risen today, Alleluia!
Sons of men and angels say: Alleluia!
Raise your joys and triumphs high, Alleluia!
Sing ye heavens, and earth reply, Alleluia!

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, O grave? Alleluia!

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!

Charles Wesley, 1739 Hymn 163 CCLI 2865941
