1 CHRIST is risen: sound His praise;
He the sleeping saints will raise;
Grave, boast not of victory,
Christ arose and vanquished thee.
2 Christ is risen: come He will,
Cease our tears, our sighs be still;
Christ those bars of death will break ---
Bid His own their graves forsake.
3 Christ is risen; His own voice
Shall our longing hearts rejoice;
We shall see Him face to face;
Glory soon shall crown His grace.
