359. Christ the Lord is Ris'n Today

1 Christ the Lord is ris'n today! Alleluia!
All creation join to say: Alleluia!
Raise your joys and triumphs high; alleluia!
Sing, O heav'ns, and earth reply: Alleluia!

2 Vain the stone, the watch, the seal; alleluia!
Christ has burst the gates of hell! Alleluia!
Death in vain forbids his rise; alleluia!
Christ has opened Paradise. Alleluia!

3 Lives again our glorious King; alleluia!
Where, O death, is now your sting? Alleluia!
Once he died, our souls to save; alleluia!
Where your victory, O grave? Alleluia!

4 Soar we now where Christ has led, alleluia!
Foll'wing our exalted Head; alleluia!
Made like him, like him we rise; alleluia!
Ours the cross, the grave, the skies. Alleluia!

5 Hail the Lord of earth and heaven! Alleluia!
Praise to you by both be giv'n; Alleluia!
Risen Christ, triumphant now; Alleluia!
Ev'ry knee to you shall bow. Alleluia!
