So before you hit the "close" button on this box, please consider a donation to keep Hymnary going.

More than half a million people come here every month -- worship leaders, hymnologists, hymn lovers and more -- people who now have access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet thanks to this site. But keeping all of this afloat does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. So if you benefit from, would you please consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

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

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!

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!
