    Christ the Lord Is Risen Today, vs. 1-4 Christ the Lord is risen today, Alleluia!

    Earth and heaven in chorus say, Alleluia! Raise your joys and triumphs high, Alleluia! Sing, ye heavens, and earth reply, Alleluia!

    Loves redeeming work is done, Alleluia! Fought the fight, the battle won, Alleluia! Death in vain forbids him rise, Alleluia!

    Christ has opened paradise, Alleluia!

    Lives again our glorious King, Alleluia! Where, O death, is now thy sting? Alleluia!

    Once he died our souls to save, Alleluia! Wheres thy victory, boasting grave? Alleluia!

    Soar we now where Christ has led, Alleluia! Following our exalted Head, Alleluia!

    Made like him, like him we rise, Alleluia! Ours the cross, the grave, the skies, Alleluia!

    Because He LivesGod sent his Son, they called him Jesus;

    he came to love, heal, and forgive; he lived and died to buy my pardon,

    an empty grave is there to prove my Savior lives. Because he lives, I can face tomorrow;

    because he lives, all fear is gone; because I know he holds the future,

    and life is worth the living just because he lives.

    How sweet to hold a newborn baby,and feel the pride and joy he gives;

    but greater still the calm assurance, this child can face uncertain days because he lives.

    Because he lives, I can face tomorrow; because he lives, all fear is gone;

    because I know he holds the future, and life is worth the living just because he lives.

    And then one day Ill cross the river; Ill fight lifes final war with pain;

    and then as death gives way to victory, Ill see the lights of glory and Ill know he reigns.

    Because he lives, I can face tomorrow; because he lives, all fear is gone;

    because I know he holds the future, and life is worth the living just because he lives.

    Easter People, Raise Your VoicesEaster people, raise your voices,

    sounds of heaven in earth should ring. Christ has brought us heavens choices;

    heavenly music, let it ring. Alleluia! Alleluia! Easter people, let us sing.

    Fear of death can no more stop us from our pressing here below. For our Lord empowered us to triumph over every foe.

    Alleluia! Alleluia! On to victory now we go.

    Every day to us is Easter, with its resurrection song.

    When in trouble move the faster to our God who rights the wrong.

    Alleluia! Alleluia! See the power of heavenly throngs.

    DoxologyPraise God, from whom all blessings flow;

    Praise God, all creatures here below: Alleluia! Alleluia!

    Praise God, the source of all our gifts!Praise Jesus Christ, whose power uplifts!Praise the Spirit, Holy Spirit! Alleluia!

    Alleluia! Alleluia!
