AGH 168

Verse 1

Christ, the Lord, is risen today;
Sons of men and angels say,
Raise your joys and triumphs high;
Sing, ye heaven; thou earth, reply,

Verse 2

Love's redeeming work is done;
Fought the fight, the battle won;
Vain the stone, the watch, the seal;
Christ hath burst the gates of hell:

Verse 3

Lives again our glorious King;
Where, O death, is now thy sting?
Once he died our souls to save;
Where's thy victory, boasting grave?

Verse 4

Soar we now where Christ hath led,
Following our exalted Head;
Made like him, like him we rise;
Ours the cross, the grave, the skies:

Verse 5

King of glory! Soul of bliss;
Everlasting life is this,
Thee to know, thy power to prove,
Thus to sing, and thus to love:
