184. Christ the Lord is risen again

1. Christ the Lord is risen again!
Christ hath broken every chain!
Now through all the world it rings
that the Lamb in King of kings.

Alleluia, alleluia, alleluia!
Christ, our Paschal lamb indeed,
Christ, today your people feed.

2. He who gave for us his life,
who for us endured the strife,
takes our sin and guilt away
that with angels we may say:
Alleluia! (Refrain)

3. He who bore all pain and loss
comfortless upon the cross
is exalted now to save,
wresting victory from the grave.
Alleluia! (Refrain)
