Sacred Songs and Solos Lyrics
First Line: Christ the Lord is risen to-day,
Christ the Lord is risen to-day !
Sons of men and angels say;
Raise your joy and triumph high,
Sing, ye heavens ! and earth, reply:
2 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:
3 Vain the stone, the watch, the seal,
Christ hath burst the gates of hell;
Death in vain forbids His rise,
Christ hath opened Paradise:
4 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 ?
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:
