Christ, the Lord, is risen today!
All creation joins to say:
Raise your joys and triumphs high!
Sing, ye heavens, and earth, reply!
Lives again our glorious King!
Where, O death, is now thy sting?
Dying once, He all doth save,
Where thy victory, O grave?
Love's redeeming work is done,
Fought the fight, the battle won.
Death in vain forbids Him rise:
Christ has opened paradise.
Soar we now where Christ has led,
Following our exalted Head.
Made like Him, like Him we rise,
Ours the cross, the grave, the skies!
