Happy Easter

Christ the Lord is Risen Today

Christ the Lord is risen today, Alleluia
Sons of men and angels say, Alleluia
Raise your joys and triumphs high, Alleluia
Sing, ye heav'ns, and earth reply, Alleluia

Lives again our glorious King, Alleluia
Where, O death, is now thy sting, Alleluia
Dying once, He all doth save, Alleluia
Where thy victory, o grave? Alleluia

Love's redeeming work is done, Alleluia
Fought the fight, the victory won, Alleluia
Death in vain forbids Him rise, Alleluia
Christ has opened Paradise, Alleluia

Soar we now where Christ has led, Alleluia
Following our exalted Head, Alleluia
Made like Him, like Him we rise, Alleluia
Ours the cross, the grave, the skies, Alleluia

Charles Wesley, 1739
