358. Jesus Christ is Ris'n Today

1 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!

2 Hymns of praise then let us sing, alleluia!
Unto Christ, our heav'nly King, alleluia!
Who endured the cross and grave, alleluia!
Sinners to redeem and save. Alleluia!

3 But the pains which he endured, alleluia!
Our salvation have procured; alleluia!
Now above the sky he's King, alleluia!
Where the angels ever sing. Alleluia!

4 Now be God the Father praised, alleluia!
With the Son, from death upraised, alleluia!
And the Spirit,ever blessed; alleluia!
One true God, by all confessed. Alleluia!
