    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 pain which He endured, Alleluia!
    Our salvation hath procured, Alleluia!
    Now above the sky He's king, Alleluia!
    Where the angels ever sing, Alleluia!

    Sing we to our God above, Alleluia!
    Praise eternal as His love, Alleluia!
    Praise Him, all you heavenly host, Alleluia!
    Father, Son, and Holy Ghost, Alleluia!

    Alleluia! Let the Holy Anthem Rise

    Buy track Lyrics

    Alleluia, Alleluia Let the Holy Anthem Rise
    Alleluia, Alleluia let the holy anthem rise and the choirs of heaven chant it
    In the temple of the skies let the mountains skip with gladness and the joyful valleys ring
    With Hosannas in the highest to our Savior and our King.

    Alleluia, Alleluia He endured the knotted whips
    And the jering of the rabble and the scorn of mocking lips
    And the terrors of the gibbet upon which He would be slain
    But His death was only slumber He is risen up again.

    Alleluia, Alleluia like the sun from out the wave
    He has risen up in triumph from The darkness of the grave
    He's the Splendor of the Nations He's the lamp of endless day
    He's the very Lord of Glory who is risen up today

    Alleluia! Let the Holy Anthem Rise

    Now the Green Blade Rises

    Now the Green Blade Rises

    Now the green blade rises from the buried grain,
    Wheat that in the dark earth many years has lain;
    Love lives again, that with the dead has been:
    Love is come again, like wheat that springs up green.

    In the grave they laid Him, Love Whom we had slain,
    Thinking that He’d never wake to life again,
    Laid in the earth like grain that sleeps unseen:
    Love is come again, like wheat that springs up green.

    Up He sprang at Easter, like the risen grain,
    He that for three days in the grave had lain;
    Up from the dead my risen Lord is seen:
    Love is come again, like wheat that springs up green.

    When our hearts are saddened, grieving or in pain,
    By Your touch You call us back to life again;
    Fields of our hearts that dead and bare have been:
    Love is come again, like wheat that springs up green.

    Now the Green Blade Rises

    At the Lamb's High Feast

    At the Lamb's High Feast We Sing

    At the Lamb's high feast we sing praise to our victorious King,
    who hath washed us in the tide flowing from his pierced side;
    praise we him, whose love divine gives his sacred Blood for wine,
    gives his Body for the feast, Christ the victim, Christ the priest.

    Where the Paschal blood is poured, death's dark angel sheathes his sword;
    Israel's hosts triumphant go through the wave that drowns the foe.
    Praise we Christ, whose blood was shed, Paschal victim, Paschal bread;
    with sincerity and love eat we manna from above.

    Mighty victim from on high, hell's fierce powers beneath thee lie;
    thou hast conquered in the fight, thou hast brought us life and light:
    now no more can death appall, now no more the grave entrall;
    thou hast opened paradise, and in thee thy saints shall rise.

    Easter triumph, Easter joy, in alone can this destroy;
    from sin's power do thou set free souls newborn, O Lord, in thee.
    Hymns of glory and of praise, Risen Lord, to thee we raise;
    Holy Father, praise to thee, with the Spirit, ever be.

    At the Lamb's High Feast

    I Know that My Redeemer Lives
    By: Samuel Medley

    I know that my Redeemer lives!
    What comfort this sweet sentence gives!
    He lives, he lives, who once was dead;
    He lives, my ever living head!

    He lives to bless me with his love;
    He lives to plead for me above;
    He lives my hungry soul to feed;
    He lives to help in time of need.

    He lives and grants me daily breath;
    He lives, and I shall conquer death;
    He lives my mansion to prepare;
    He lives to bring me safely there.

    He lives, all glory to his name!
    He lives, my savior, still the same;
    What joy this blest assurance gives:
    I know that my Redeemer lives!

    I Know That My Redeemer Lives

    O Sons and Daughters

    Buy track Lyrics

    "Ye Sons and Daughters of the King"
    Translated by John M. Neale, 1818]1866
    Refrain between each verse: Alleluia!
    1. Ye sons and daughters of the King,
    Whom heavenly hosts in glory sing,
    Today the grave hath lost its sting:
    2. On that first morning of the week,
    Before the day began to break,
    The Marys went their Lord to seek:
    3. An angel bade their sorrow flee,
    For thus he spoke unto the three:
    "Your Lord is gone to Galilee":
    4. That night the Apostles met in fear,
    Amidst them came their Lord most dear
    And said: "Peace be unto you here":
    5. When Thomas afterwards had heard
    That Jesus had fulfilled His word,
    He doubted if it were the Lord:
    6. "Thomas, behold My side," saith He,
    "My hands, My feet, My body, see;
    "And doubt not, but believe in Me":
    7. No longer Thomas then denied;
    He saw the feet, the hands, the side;
    "Thou art my Lord and God," he cried:
    8. Blessed are they that have not seen
    And yet whose faith hath constant been,
    In Iife eternal they shall reign:
    9. On this most holy day of days
    To God your hearts and voices raise
    In laud and jubilee and praise:
    10. And we with holy Church unite,
    As evermore is just and right,
    In glory to the King of light:

    O Sons and Daughters

    That Easter Day With Joy Was Bright

    That Easter day with joy was bright,
    the sun shone out with fairer light,
    when, to their longing eyes restored,
    the apostles saw their risen Lord.

    His bade them see his hands, his side,
    where yet the glorious wounds abide;
    the tokens true which made it plain
    their Lord was risen again.

    O Jesus, King of gentleness,
    do thou thyself out hearts possess
    that we may give thee all our days
    the tribute of our grateful praise.

    O Lord of all, with us abide
    in this our joyful Eastertide;
    from every weapon death can wield
    thine own redeemed for ever shield

    All praise to you, O risen Lord,
    Now both by heaven and earth adored;
    To God the Father equal praise,
    And Spirit blest, our songs we raise.

    The Strife is O’er

    Alleluia! Alleluia! Alleluia!
    The strife is o’er, the battle done;
    The victory of life is won;
    The song of triumph has begun: Alleluia!


    Death mightiest powers have done their worst;
    And Jesus has his foes dispersed;
    Let shouts of praise and joy outburst! Alleluia!


    He closed the yawning gates of hell;
    The bars from heaven’s high portals fell;
    Let hymns of praise His triumphs tell! Alleluia!


    On the third morn he rose again,
    Glorious in majesty to reign
    O let us swell the joyful strain: Alleluia!


    The Strife is O'er

    Come Away to the Skies,

    Come away to the skies, my belovèd, arise
    And rejoice in the day you were born;
    On this festival day, come exulting away,
    And with singing to Zion return.

    Now with singing and praise let us spend all the days
    By our heavenly Father bestowed,
    While His grace we receive from His bounty, and live
    To the honor and glory of God!

    For the glory we were first created to share,
    Both the nature and kingdom divine,
    Now created again that our lives may remain
    Throughout time and eternity Thine.

    We with thanks do approve the design
    Of that love that hath joined us to Jesus’ Name;
    Now united in heart, let us never more part,
    Till we meet at the feast of the Lamb.

    Hallelujah! we sing to our Father and King,
    And His rapturous praises repeat:
    To the Lamb that was slain, Hallelujah again!
    Sing all Heaven and fall at His feet!

    Come Away to the Skies
