1. Christ is risen, Christ is risen,
He hath left the solemn grave;
Christ is risen, Christ is risen,
For a dying world to save;
Send the tidings round the world,
Let it reach to every soul;
Now His banner is unfurled,
Spread the news from pole to pole.

2. Christ is risen, Christ is risen,
Cheer thy heart and dry thy tears;
Christ is risen, Christ is risen,
He will quiet all thy fears;
Oh, ye mourners, cease to mourn,
Why should life be filled with sighs?
Christ has all thy sorrows borne,
Now He beckons toward the skies.

3. Christ is risen, Christ is risen,
Sinner, come and join the song;
Christ is risen, Christ is risen,
You may yet to Him belong;
We’ll forever sing His praise,
Join we now with one accord,
While we’ve breath the song to raise,
Sing for Christ, our risen Lord.
