76. Christ Hath Arisen

1 Sing, O my soul, repeat the olden story,
Christ on the cross is slain for guilty men;
Low in the grave, behold the Lord of glory,
Shout, shout the victory! He liveth again!

Chorus:
Christ hath arisen! He lives no more to die;
Christ has arisen! He pleads for us on high;
Tell of His might, and praise His holy name,
Oh, let the ransom'd ones His great love proclaim.

2 Spread, spread the news of Jesus' resurrection,
Tell how the stone was quickly rolled away;
Death could not hold its King in meek subjection,
Come, see the empty tomb where once Jesus lay. [Chorus]

3 O risen Lord, o'er life and death victorious,
Look from Thy throne on all who trust in Thee;
By all Thy might, by Thine ascension glorious,
Thou art exalted our Redeemer to be. [Chorus]

4 He will return! His promise stands recorded;
Each eye shall see and ev'ry heart shall burn;
Still watch and wait, till faith and hope rewarded,
Sound out the triumph-note to greet His return. [Chorus]
