Christ the Lord is Risen Today ~ Hymn

Christos Voskress! Voistina Voskress!

Христос Воскрес!

Воистину воскрес!

Christ is Risen!

Truly He is Risen!

Christ the Lord is Risen Today

Christ the Lord is risen today, Alleluia!
Sons of men and angels say, Alleluia!
Raise your joys and triumphs high, Alleluia!
Sing, ye heav’ns, and earth, reply, Alleluia!

Love’s redeeming work is done, Alleluia!
Fought the fight, the battle won, Alleluia!
Lo! the Sun’s eclipse is o’er, Alleluia!
Lo! He sets in blood no more, Alleluia!

Vain the stone, the watch, the seal, Alleluia!
Christ hath burst the gates of hell, Alleluia!
Death in vain forbids Him 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 thy victory, O 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!

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!

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!

Hymns of praise then let us sing, Alleluia!
Unto Christ, our heavenly King, Alleluia!
Who endured the cross and grave, Alleluia!
Sinners to redeem and save. Alleluia!

But the pains that He endured, Alleluia!
Our salvation have procured, Alleluia!
Now above the sky He’s King, Alleluia!
Where the angels ever sing. Alleluia!

Jesus Christ is risen today, Alleluia!
Our triumphant holy day, Alleluia!
Who did once upon the cross, Alleluia!
Suffer to redeem our loss. Alleluia!

Words: Charles Wesley, 1739. Stanzas 8-10 unknown author.

  1. Happy Easter! Wonderful hymn. We don’t sing enough of these old standards (at least in my church) anymore. They’re just filled with scripture!

  2. To me, Easter service isn’t complete unless this hymn is sung. We were visiting a church yesterday (haven’t found a church home yet…), and I was so hoping they would sing this hymn, and they did! So, I felt complete at the Easter service. 🙂

  3. Yes! That’s the first hymn we sung at the Easter service. Not many churches still sing these old hymns now and I so appreciated that it was selected. Thanks for sharing it here on your post. And your pics in the next post too… I can see you had a marvellous time of family gathering and food.

  4. Greetings from Wordwise Hymns. Thanks for posting Charles Wesley’s great hymn. It’s not Easter, of course. But actually every day is resurrection day for the Christian, a day of new beginnings with Christ. I posted an article on the hymn myself this morning.
