Christ is ris­en from the dead:
He has set His peo­ple free;
Bruised for us the ser­pent’s head,
Won for us the vic­to­ry!

Christ is ris­en from the dead,
Mighty in His pow­er to save!
And, as our as­cend­ed head,
Reaps the har­vest of the grave.

Now, be­fore the throne He stands,
Crowned the Vic­tor in the strife,
Shows His wound­ed feet and hands,
In the pow­er of end­less life.

As our first-fruits He ap­pears,
In Him all His peo­ple rise;
And through ev­er­last­ing years
Share His glo­ry in the skies.
