Easter Hymn Lyrics 2020

Christ Arose

Low in the grave He lay,
Jesus, my Savior,
Waiting the coming day,
Jesus, my Lord!

Up from the grave He arose,
With a mighty triumph o’er His foes,
He arose a Victor from the dark domain,
And He lives forever, with His saints to reign.
He arose! He arose!
Hallelujah! Christ arose!

Vainly they watch His bed,
Jesus, my Savior;
Vainly they seal the dead,
Jesus, my Lord!

Death cannot keep his Prey,
Jesus, my Savior;
He tore the bars away,
Jesus, my Lord!

Worship Christ, the Risen King

Rise, O Church and lift your voices;
Christ has conquered death and hell. 
Sing as all the earth rejoices
Resurrection anthems swell. 
Come and worship, Come and worship,
Worship Christ, the risen King!

See the tomb where death had laid Him;
Empty now, its mouth declares:
“Death and I could not contain Him,
For the throne of life He shares.”
Come and worship, Come and worship,
Worship Christ, the risen King!

Hear the earth protest and tremble;
See the stone removed with pow’r.
All hell’s minions may assemble,
But cannot withstand His hour.
He has conquered, He has conquered;
Christ the Lord, the risen King!

We acclaim Your life, O Jesus;Now we sign Your victory.
Sin and hell may seek to seize us,
But Your conquest keeps us free.
Stand in triumph, Stand in triumph;
Worship Christ, the risen King!

Christ the Lord is Risen Today

Christ the Lord is risen today, Alleluia!
Earth and heaven in chorus 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!
Once he died our souls to save, Alleluia!
Where’s thy victory, boasting 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!
