Hymn 118
Christ the Lord is risen today

1. ‘Christ the Lord is risen today,’ Sons of men and angels say; Raise your joys and triumphs high; Sing, ye heavens, and, earth, reply. Love’s redeeming work is done, Fought the fight, the battle won; Lo! Our Sun’s eclipse is o’er; Lo! He sets in blood no more. 2. Vain the stone, the watch, the seal; Christ has burst the gates of hell; Death in vain forbids his rise; Christ has opened Paradise. Lives again our glorious King; Where, O Death, is now thy sting? Once He died, our souls to save; Where thy victory, O grave? 3. 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. Hail, the Lord of earth and heaven Praise to Thee by both be given; Thee we greet triumphant now; Hail, the Resurrection Thou!
