Christ the Lord is Risen

This original author and composer of this hymn are unknown.

It was found in a "home made" hymnal most probably from the 1970's or 80's and most probably used by the charismatic movement. However the language of this hymn is more formal than many others in the booklet, suggesting that it may be older or from a different tradition.

Lyrics:


Christ the Lord is risen, risen!
Hear the joyful story.
Christ the Lord is risen, risen!
Lifted up in glory.
Death is conquer’d, death is conquer’d,
Grave where is thy victory?
Alleluia, alleluia,
All the world is free.

Let us then be singing, singing,
To our Lord supernal.
Songs of joy and gladness bringing,
Songs of life eternal.
He is risen, he is risen!
In the grave no more he lies,
Alleluia! Alleluia! Sing it to the skies!
Christ the Lord is risen, risen.
So shall we arise.
