250. Jesus Christ Is Risen Today

1 Jesus Christ is risen today, Alleluia!
our triumphant holy day, Alleluia!
who did once, upon the cross, Alleluia!
suffer to redeem our loss, Alleluia!

2 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!

3 But the pains which he endured, Alleluia!
our salvation hath procured: Alleluia!
now above the sky he’s king, Alleluia!
where the angels ever sing, Alleluia!

4 Sing we to our God above, Alleluia!
praise eternal as God's love, Alleluia!
praise him, all ye heavenly host, Alleluia!
Father, Son, and Holy Ghost, Alleluia!
