Representative Text

1 Christ is risen from the dead:
He has set His people free;
Bruised for us the serpent’s head,

Mighty in His power to save!
And, as our ascended head,
Reaps the harvest of the grave.

3 Now, before the throne He stands,
Crowned the victor in the strife,
Shows His wounded feet and hands,
In the power of endless life.

4 As our first-fruits He appears,
In Him all His people rise;
And through everlasting years
Share His glory in the skies.
