THE LORD IS RISEN




Yes, the Redeemer rose,
the Saviour left the dead,
And o’er our hellish foes
high raised His conquering head.
In wild dismay the guards around,
Fall to the ground and sink away.


Lo! the angelic bands
in full assembly meet,
To wait His high commands
and worship at His feet.
Joyful they come, and wing their way
From realms of day to such a tomb.


Then back to Heaven they fly
and the glad tidings bear.
Hark! as they soar on high,
what music fills the air!
Their anthems say, “Jesus, Who bled,
Hath left the dead, He rose today.”


Ye mortals, catch the sound,
redeemed by Him from hell;
And send the echo round
the globe on which you dwell:
Transported, cry, “Jesus, Who bled,
Hath left the dead, no more to die.”


All hail! triumphant Lord,
Who savest us with Thy blood;
Wide be Thy Name adored,
Thou rising, reigning God!
With Thee we rise, with Thee we reign,
And empires gain beyond the skies.


---Alternative verses---


Behold, the angelic bands
in full assembly meet,
To wait His high commands
and worship at His feet.
Joyful they come, and wing their way
From realms of day to see the Lamb.


Lo! the angelic bands
in full assembly meet,
To wait His high commands
and worship at His feet.
Joyful they come, and wing their way
From realms of day to Jesus' tomb.


Lo! the angelic bands
in full assembly meet,
To wait His high commands
and worship at His feet.
Joyful they come, and wing their way
From realms of day to see His tomb.


Then back to Heaven they fly
the joyful news to bear.
Hark! as they soar on high,
what music fills the air!
Their anthems say, "Jesus, Who bled,
Hath left the dead, He rose today."
