452. Christ the Lord Is Risen Today

1 Christ the Lord is ris'n today;
Christians, haste your vows to pay;
Make your joy and praises known;
At the Paschal Victim's throne.
Alleluia. Alleluia. Alleluia. Alleluia.

2 For the sheep the Lamb has bled,
Sinless in the sinner's stead;
Christ the Lord is ris'n on high;
Now he lives, no more to die.
Alleluia. Alleluia. Alleluia. Alleluia.

3 Christ, the Victim undefiled,
God and sinners reconciled,
When in fierce and bloody strife
Met together death and life.
Alleluia. Alleluia. Alleluia. Alleluia.

4 Christians, on this happy day,
Raise your hearts with joy and say:
Christ the Lord is ris'n on high;
Now he lives no more to die.
Alleluia. Alleluia. Alleluia. Alleluia.

5 Hallowed, chosen dawn of praise,
Easter, queen of all our days:
Zion's children now come forth;
East to west and south to north.
Alleluia. Alleluia. Alleluia. Alleluia.

6 Let the people praise you, Lord,
Be, by all that is adored:
Let the nations shout and sing;
Glory to their Paschal King.
Alleluia. Alleluia. Alleluia. Alleluia.

7 Hymns of glory, songs of praise,
God on high, to you we raise:
Risen Lord, we now adore,
With the Spirit ever more.
Alleluia. Alleluia. Alleluia. Alleluia.
