14622. Risen Today

1 See, the seal is rudely broken!
Lo! the stone is rolled away!
Kept is every sign and token;
He is risen! angels say.

He is risen! He is risen!
See the place where Jesus lay!
Angels herald joyous tidings:
Christ, the Lord, arose today!

2 Lo! the tomb is standing open,
And the Marys weeping near;
Angel tongues within are spoken:
He is risen; do not fear! [Refrain]

3 Hark! the joyful tidings ringeth;
Christ hath triumphed o’er the grave!
Joy to all His foll’wers bringeth;
Christ hath risen!—lives to save! [Refrain]
