217. Christ the Lord Is Risen Again

1 Christ the Lord is risen again,
Christ has broken every chain.
Hark, the angel voices cry,
singing evermore on high:
alleluia!

2 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!

3 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!

4 He who slumbered in the grave
is exalted now to save;
through the universe it rings
that the lamb is King of kings:
alleluia!

5 Now he bids us tell abroad
how the lost may be restored,
how the penitent forgiven,
how we too may enter heaven:
alleluia!

6 Christ, our paschal lamb indeed,
all your ransomed people feed!
Take our sins and guilt away:
let us sing by night and day:
alleluia!
