Jesus Christ is risen today


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

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!

But the pains which he endured, Alleluia!
our salvation have procured, Alleluia!
now above the sky he's King, Alleluia!
where the angels ever sing. Alleluia!


Words: Compleat Psalmodist, 1749

MIDI: Easter Hymn (Lyra Davidica, 1708;
arranged by William Henry Monk, 1823-1889)
The index below is not accurate as to which hymnal has the Monk arrangement and which has the original from Lyra Davidica. I will work on correcting this as I update the site.
