191. Christ the Lord is Risen Today; Alleluia!

1 Christ the Lord is ris'n today; Alleluia!
Christians, haste your vows to pay; Alleluia!
Offer ye your praises meet Alleluia!
At the Paschal Victim's feet. Alleluia!

2 For the sheep the Lamb hath bled, Alleluia!
Sinless in the sinner's stead. Alleluia!
"Christ is ris'n," today we cry; Alleluia!
Now He lives no more to die. Alleluia!

3 Christ, the Victim undefiled, Alleluia!
God and man hath reconciled Alleluia!
While in strange and awefull strife Alleluia!
Met together Death and Life. Alleluia!

4 Christians, on this happy day Alleluia!
Haste with joy your vows to pay. Alleluia!
"Christ is ris'n," today we cry; Alleluia!
Now He lives no more to die. Alleluia!

5 Christ, who once for sinners bled, Alleluia!
Now the First-born from the dead, Alleluia!
Throned in endless might and power, Alleluia!
Lives and reigns forevermore. Alleluia!

6 Hail, eternal Hope on high! Alleluia!
Hail, Thou King of victory! Alleluia!
Hail, Thou Prince of Life adored! Alleluia!
Help and save us, gracious Lord. Alleluia!

Amen.
