Risen With Him

Representative Text

1 Hear the angel's glorious message
Breaking thro' the night of gloom,
Fear ye not! the Lord is risen,
Lo! the empty tomb.

Risen Lord! ascended Savior!
He is throned in light and love;
If ye then with Him be risen,
Seek those things above.

2 Saints below, thro' Him triumphant,
Following where His feet have trod;
Is your life and all your treasure,
Hid with Christ in God? [Chorus]

3 Ye who share His resurrection,
Raised to life thro' second birth,
Set on Him your heart's affection,
Hot on things of earth. [Chorus]

4 Dead to sin, with Jesus risen,
Walk in Him, in love and fear,
When He shall appear in glory,
Then shall ye appear. [Chorus]
