Jesus Christ Is Risen The Feast


Jesus Christ is risen:
The feast, good Christians, therefore keep;
The Lamb has bled to save the sheep
Christ innocent, our ransom paid,
Mankind and God at one hath made:
Alleluya, Alleluya.

Jesus Christ is risen:
Speak, Mary Magdalen, and say
What sawest thou upon the way?
‘I saw the grave, and there adored
The glory of the risen Lord’:
Alleluya, Alleluya.

Jesus Christ is risen:
‘Within the grave on either hand
I saw a white-robed angel stand;
My Saviour Christ, my hope, my stay,
Hath risen from the tomb today’:
Alleluya, Alleluya.

Jesus Christ is risen:
We know for certain, truth to tell,
That Christ arose from death and hell;
And while thy Paschal song we sing,
Have pity on us, Victor-king:
Alleluya, Alleluya.
