The Otterbein Hymnal by Edmund S. Lorenz

143 Nuremburg. 7s. The Lord is Risen.

The Lord is Risen. (322)

Christ, the Lord, is risen to-day,
Sons of men and angels say:
Raise your joys and triumphs high;
Sing, ye heavens; thou 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?

Charles Wesley, 1739.
