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.

Chorus:
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]
