Christ the Lord is risen today (Wesley)

Christ the Lord is risen today; (Alleluia!)
sons of men and angels say: (Alleluia!)
raise your joys and triumphs high; (Alleluia!)
sing, ye heavens; thou earth, reply: (Alleluia!)

Love's redeeming work is done, (Alleluia!)
fought the fight, the battle won; (Alleluia!)
vain the stone, the watch, the seal; (Alleluia!)
Christ hath burst the gates of hell: (Alleluia!)

Vain the stone, the watch, the seal; (Alleluia!)
Christ hath burst the gates of hell: (Alleluia!)
death in vain forbids his rise; (Alleluia!)
Christ hath opened paradise. (Alleluia!)

Lives again our glorious king; (Alleluia!)
Where, O death, is now thy sting? (Alleluia!)
Once he died our souls to save (Alleluia!)
where's thy victory, boasting grave? (Alleluia!)

Soar we now where Christ hath led, (Alleluia!)
following our exalted head; (Alleluia!)
made like him, like him we rise; (Alleluia!)
ours the cross, the grave, the skies: (Alleluia!)

King of glory! Soul of bliss! (Alleluia!)
Everlasting life is this, (Alleluia!)
thee to know, thy power to prove, (Alleluia!)
thus to sing, and thus to love: (Alleluia!)

Hail the Lord of earth and heaven! (Alleluia!)
Praise to thee by both be given: (Alleluia!)
thee we greet triumphant now, (Alleluia!)
hail, the resurrection thou! (Alleluia!)
