Happy Easter from NHIM – 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 heavens, and earth reply: “Alleluia!”

Love’s redeeming work is done! Alleluia!
Fought the fight, the battle won! Alleluia!
Death in vain forbids Him rise. Alleluia!
Christ has opened paradise! Alleluia!

Lives again our glorious King! Alleluia!
Where, O death, is now thy sting? Alleluia!
Dying once He all doth save! Alleluia!
Where thy victory, O grave? Alleluia!

Soar we now where Christ has led, Alleluia!
Following our exalted Head, Alleluia!
Made like Him, like Him we rise! Alleluia!
Ours the cross, the grave, the skies! Alleluia!

by Charles Wesley (1739)
