Christ the Lord is risen today Christian




Christ the Lord is risen today;
Christians, haste your vows to pay;
Offer ye your praises meet
At the Paschal Victimís feet.
For the sheep the Lamb hath bled,
Sinless in the sinnerís stead;
ďChrist is risen,Ē today we cry;
Now He lives no more to die.

Think about His love,
think about His goodness.
Think about His grace
thatís brought us through.
For as high as the heavenís above
so great is the measure
of our Fatherís love.
Great is the measure of our Fatherís love.


Christ, the Victim undefiled,
Man to God hath reconciled;
Whilst in strange and awful strife
Met together Death and Life:
Christians, on this happy day
Haste with joy your vows to pay;
ďChrist is risen,Ē today we cry;
Now He lives no more to die.

Think about His love,
think about His goodness.
Think about His grace
thatís brought us through.
For as high as the heavenís above
so great is the measure
of our Fatherís love.
Great is the measure of our Fatherís love.


Say, O wondíring Mary, say
What thou sawest on thy way.
ĎI beheld, where Christ has lain,
Empty tomb and angels twain,
I beheld the glory bright
Of the rising Lord of light;
Christ my hope is risín again;
now he lives, and lives to reign.í

Think about His love,
think about His goodness.
Think about His grace
thatís brought us through.
For as high as the heavenís above
so great is the measure
of our Fatherís love.
Great is the measure of our Fatherís love.


Christ, Who once for sinners bled,
Now the first born from the dead,
Throned in endless might and power,
Lives and reigns forevermore.
Hail, eternal Hope on high!
Hail, Thou King of victory!
Hail, Thou Prince of life adored!
Help and save us, gracious Lord.

Think about His love,
think about His goodness.
Think about His grace
thatís brought us through.
For as high as the heavenís above
so great is the measure
of our Fatherís love.
Great is the measure of our Fatherís love.
