CHRIST THE LORD IS RISEN TODAY! – HYMN

CHRIST THE LORD IS RISEN TODAY   

HYMN 

I

Christ the Lord is risen today!

Christians haste your vows to pay,

offer ye your praises meet

at the paschal victim’s feet;

for the sheep the Lamb hath bled,

sinless in the sinner’s stead.

Christ the Lord is ris’n on high;

now he lives, no more to die.

II

Christ, the victim undefiled,

all to God hath reconciled

when in strange and awful strife

met together death and life;

Christians, on this happy day

haste with joy your vows to pay.

Christ the Lord is ris’n on high;

now he lives, no more to die.

III

Say, O wond’ring Mary, say

what thou sawest on thy way.

‘I beheld, where Christ had lain,

empty tomb and angels twain,

I beheld the glory bright

of the rising Lord of light;

Christ my hope is ris’n again;

now he lives, and lives to reign.’

IV 

Christ, who once for sinners bled,

now the first-born from the dead,

throned in endless might and power,

lives and reigns for evermore.

Hail, eternal hope on high!

Hail, thou king of victory!

Hail, thou Prince of life adored!

Help and save us, gracious Lord.

(Wipo – 11th century hymn – Tr. Jane Elizabeth Leeson 1809-1881)
