Jesus Christ Is Risen Today – Sunday Songs

Leave a comment

Shouting ‘He is risen’; hearing the congregation yell back ‘He is risen indeed’; repeat; repeat.
(I’m sorry about the baby that cried. He’ll get used to it.)
Then the organ sounds and we launch into this.
It doesn’t get a lot better than that.
1
Jesus Christ is ris’n today, Alleluia!
Our triumphant holy day, Alleluia!
Who did once, upon the cross, Alleluia!
Suffer to redeem our loss. Alleluia!
2
Hymns of praise then let us sing, Alleluia!
Unto Christ our heav’nly King, Alleluia!
Who endured the cross and grave, Alleluia!
Sinners to redeem and save. Alleluia!
3
But the pains which he endured, Alleluia!
Our salvation have procured; Alleluia!
Now above the sky he’s King, Alleluia!
Where the angels ever sing. Alleluia!
4
Sing we to our God above, Alleluia!
Praise eternal as his love; Alleluia!
Praise him, all ye heavenly host, Alleluia!
Father, Son, and Holy Ghost. Alleluia!

Here’s the King’s College Choir giving it their shot. I don’t think they sound much better than us.
