The Lord is risen indeed

The Lord is risen indeed:
can this good news be true?
Yes! those who saw the Saviour bleed
have seen him risen too.

2. The Lord is risen indeed!
Now is his work performed:
now is the mighty captive freed
and death’s strong castle stormed.

3. The Lord is risen indeed!
Then justice asks no more;
mercy and truth are now agreed,
which stood opposed before.

4. The Lord is risen indeed!
The grave has lost its prey;
with him is risen the ransomed seed
to reign in endless day.

5. The Lord is risen indeed!
He lives, to die no more;
he lives, the sinner’s cause to plead
whose curse and shame he bore.

6. Now tune your songs with love
and strike a joyful chord;
join all the radiant hosts above
to praise our risen Lord.
