166. He Is Risen! He Is Risen!

1. He is risen! He is risen!
Tell it out with joyful voice:
He has burst the three days' prison,
Let the whole wide earth rejoice:
Death is conquered, we are free,
Christ has won the victory.

He is risen! He is risen!
Christ has won the victory.

2. Come, ye sad and fearful-hearted,
With glad smile as brightest sun:
Night's long shadows have departed;
All His suff'ring now is done,
And the passion that He bore;
Sin and pain can harm no more.

He is risen! He is risen!
Christ has won the victory.

3. He is risen! He is risen!
Risen to a holy state:
We are free from sin's dark prison,
He has opened heaven's gate.
Death is conquered, we are free;
Christ has won the victory.

He is risen! He is risen!
Christ has won the victory.
