85. Jesus Christ today is risen

1 Jesus Christ to-day is risen,
And o'er death triumphant reigns;
He has burst the grave's strong prison,
Leading sin herself in chains.
Kyrie eleison.

2 For our sin the sinless Savior
Bare the heavy wrath of God;
Reconciling us, that favor
Might be shown us through His blood.
Kyrie eleison.

3 In His hands He hath forever
Grace and life, and sin and death;
Christ His people can deliver,
All who come to Him in faith.
Kyrie eleison.
