                                  Text From:

                       THE LUTHERAN HYMNAL

        (St. Louis: Concordia Publishing House, 1941)

        1. He is arisen! Glorious word!

        Now reconciled is God, my Lord;

        The gates of heaven are open.

        My Jesus did triumphant die,

        And Satan's arrows broken lie,

        Destroyed hell's direst weapon.

        Oh, hear

        What cheer!

        Christ victorious

        Riseth glorious,

        Life He giveth--

        He was dead, but see, He liveth!
