1 Risen with Christ! O holy thought!
Lord, may it ever be,
That we, by Thine atonement bought,
Shall ever live to Thee!
May ev’ry heart be sweetly drawn,
And set on things above,
Where Jesus sits at God’s right hand,
Pledge of the Father’s love!

2 Risen with Christ! O blessed word!
From sin and death set free;
Our life is hid with Christ in God,
Lord, Thou our life shalt be!
And since such privilege is ours,
Such wondrous gift divine,
O may Thy Spirit rule in us,
And in our actions shine.

3 Risen with Christ! This Easter-day
Shall sweetly bring to mind,
A death to ev’ry evil way,
A holy life to find.
Lord, gently lead our wand’ring feet,
Thy Holy Spirit give,
That we, safe folded by Thy love,
That blessed life may live.
