141. Christ the Lord Is Risen Today (Hail the Day That Sees Him Rise)

Easter:
1 Christ the Lord is ris'n today, Alleluia!
All on earth with angels say, Alleluia!
Raise your joys and triumphs high, Alleluia!
Sing, O heav'ns, and earth reply, Alleluia!

2 Love's redeeming work is done, Alleluia!
Fought the fight, the battle won, Alleluia!
Death in vain forbids him rise, Alleluia!
Christ has opened paradise. Alleluia!

3 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!

Ascension:
1 Hail the day that sees him rise, Alleluia!
To this throne above the skies; Alleluia!
Christ, awhile to mortals given, Alleluia!
Reascends his native heav'n. Alleluia!

2 Highest heav'n its Lord receives, Alleluia!
Yet he loves the earth he leaves: Alleluia!
Though returning to his throne, Alleluia!
Still he calls the world his own. Alleluia!

3 See, he lifts his hands above. Alleluia!
See, he shows the prints of love. Alleluia!
Hark, his gracious lips bestow, Alleluia!
Blessings on his church below. Alleluia!
