Christ the Lord is risen again!

Christ the Lord is risen again! Christ hath broken every chain!
Hark, the cherub voices cry, singing evermore on high, Alleluia!

He who gave for us his life, who for us endured the strife,
Is our Paschal Lamb today! We, too, sing for joy and say, Alleluia!

He who bore all pain and loss, comfortless upon the Cross,
Lives in glory now on high, pleads for us, and hears our cry. Alleluia!

Now he bids us tell abroad how the lost may be restored,
How the penitent forgive, how we too may enter heaven. Alleluia!

Thou, our Paschal Lamb indeed, Christ, thy ransomed people feed;
Take our sins and guilt away, that we all may sing for aye, Alleluia!
