In the tomb so cold they laid him

In the tomb so cold they laid him,
death its victim claimed.
Powers of hell, they could not hold him,
back to life he came!

Christ is risen! (Christ is risen!)
Death has been conquered! (Death has been
conquered!)
Christ is risen! (Christ is risen!)
He shall reign for ever!

2. Hell had spent its fury on him,
left him crucified:
yet by blood he boldly conquered,
sin and death defied!

3. Now the fear of death is broken,
love has won the crown:
prisoners of the darkness-listen,
walls are tumbling down!

4. Raised from death, to heaven ascending,
love’s exalted King:
let his song of joy unending
through the nations ring!
