172. Jesus Christ is risen today

Four 7's, with alleluia


Charles Wesley, Lyra Davidica, 1708;



Latin; 14th cent.;

Tr. Tate and Brady, 1698;

St. 4, Charles Wesley

Jesus Christ is risen today,

Our triumphant holy day,

Who did once upon the cross

Suffer to redeem our loss.

Hymns of praise then let us sing

Unto Christ, our heavenly King,

Who endured the cross and grave,

Sinners to redeem and save.

But the pains which he endured,

Our salvation have procured;

Now above the sky he's King,

Where the angels ever sing.

Sing we to our God above

Praise eternal as his love;

Praise him, all ye heavenly host,

Father, Son, and Holy Ghost.
