Christ My Song - 226
Jesus Christ is risen today (From the Latin, after Philip Schaff/
Johannes Thomas Rüegg)
Jesus Christ is risen today.
1. Jesus Christ is risen today,
our triumphant holy day;
who did once upon the cross
suffer to redeem our loss.
2. Hymns of praise then let us sing
unto Christ, our heavenly King;
who endured the cross and grave,
sinners to redeem and save.
3. But the pains which he endured
our salvation have procured;
now above the sky he's King,
where the angels ever sing.
4. Now be God the Father praised,
with the Son, from death upraised,
and the Spirit, ever blessed;
one true God, by all confessed.
From the Latin, after Philip Schaff: Christ in Song, 1870, 198.
