Jesus Christ is risen


Jesus Christ is risen:
the feast, good Christians, therefore keep;
the Lamb has bled to save the sheep
Christ innocent, our ransom paid,
mankind and God at one hath made:
Alleluia, alleluia!

Jesus Christ is risen:
speak, Mary Magdalen, and say
what sawest thou upon the way?
"I saw the grave, and there adored
the glory of the risen Lord:"
Alleluia, alleluia!

Jesus Christ is risen:
"Within the grave on either hand
I saw a white-robed angel stand;
my Savior Christ, my hope, my stay,
hath risen from the tomb today:"
Alleluia, alleluia!

Jesus Christ is risen:
we know for certain, truth to tell,
that Christ arose from death and hell;
and while thy Paschal song we sing,
have pity on us, Victor-King:
Alleluia, alleluia!
