Christ the Lord is ris'n today

Christ the Lord is ris'n today;
Christians, haste your vows to pay;
Offer now your praises meet
At the Paschal Victim's feet.
For the sheep the Lamb has bled,
Sinless in the sinner's stead;
Christ the Lord is ris'n on high;
Now he lives, no more to die.

Christ, the Victim undefiled,
God and sinners reconciled;
When in strange and awful strife
Met together death and life;
Christians, on this happy day
Haste with joy your vows to pay.
Christ the Lord is ris'n on high;
Now he lives, no more to die.

Say, O wond'ring Mary, say
What you saw along your way.
"I beheld where Christ had lain,
Empty tomb and angels twain.
I beheld the glory bright
Of the risen Lord of light.
Christ my hope is ris'n again;
Now he lives, and lives to reign."

Christ, who once for sinners bled,
Now the firstborn from the dead,
Throned in endless might and pow'r,
Lives and reigns forevermore.
Hail, eternal Hope on high!
Hail, our King of victory!
Hail, our Prince of life adored!
Help and save us, gracious Lord.
