JESUS CHRIST IS RIS’N TODAY – HYMN

JESUS CHRIST IS RIS’N TODAY   

HYMN 

.

I

Jesus Christ is ris’n today, alleluia!

Our triumphant holy day, alleluia!

Who did once, upon the cross, alleluia!

Suffer to redeem our loss, alleluia! 

II

Hymns of praise then let us sing, alleluia!

Unto Christ, our heavenly king, alleluia!

Who endured the cross and grave, alleluia!

Sinners to redeem and save, alleluia! 

III

But the pains that he endured, alleluia!

Our salvation have procured; alleluia!

Now above the sky he’s king, alleluia!

Where the angels ever sing, alleluia! 

(Lyra Davidica 1708 and the Supplement 1816 – Based partly on “Surrexit Christus hodie”. 14th century)
