179 Christ the Lord is Risen Today!

1

Christ the Lord is ris’n today, Alleluia!

Sons of men and angels say, Alleluia!

Raise your joys and triumphs high, Alleluia!

Sing, ye heav’ns, and earth reply, Alleluia!

2

Lives again our glorious King, Alleluia!

Where, O death, is now thy sting? Alleluia!

Dying once He all doth save, Alleluia!

Where thy victory, O grave? Alleluia!

3

Love’s redeeming work is done, Alleluia!

Fought the fight, the battle won, Alleluia!

Death in vain forbids Him rise, Alleluia!

Christ hath opened Paradise, Alleluia!

4

Soar we now where Christ has led, Alleluia!

Foll’wing our exalted Head, Alleluia!

Made like Him, like Him we rise, Alleluia!

Ours the cross, the grave, the skies, Alleluia!

 

13 Crown Him with Many Crowns

1

Crown Him with many crowns, the Lamb upon His throne;

Hark! how the heav’nly anthem drowns All music but its own!

Awake my soul, and sing Of Him who died for thee,

And hail Him as thy matchless King Through all eternity.

2

Crown Him the Son of God Before the worlds began,

And ye, who tread where He hath trod, Crown Him the Son of man,

Who ev’ry grief hath known That wrings the human breast,

And takes and bears them for His own, That all in Him may rest.

3

Crown Him the Lord of life, Who triumphed o’er the grave,

Who rose victorious to the strife For those He came to save.

His glories now we sing Who died, and rose on high,

Who died, eternal life to bring, And lives that death may die.

4

Crown Him the Lord of peace, Whose pow’r a scepter sways

From pole to pole, that wars may cease, And all be prayer and praise!

His reign shall know no end, And round His pierced feet

Fair flow’rs of Paradise extend Their fragrance ever sweet.

5

Crown Him the Lord of love! Behold His hands and side,

Rich wounds, yet visible above, In beauty glorified.

All hail, Redeemer, hail! For Thou hast died for me:

Thy praise shall never, never fail Throughout eternity.

6

Crown Him the Lord of heav’n: One with the Father known,

One with the Spirit thru Him giv’n From yonder glorious throne.

To Thee be endless praise, For Thou for us hast died;

Be Thou, O Lord, thru endless days Adored and magnified.

 

192 One Day

1

One day when heaven was filled with his praises,

One day when sin was as black as could be,

Jesus came forth to be born of a virgin—

Dwelt among men my example is He!

Living, He loved me; dying, He saved me;

Buried, He carried my sins far away;

Rising He justified freely forever:

One day He’s coming—

Oh, glorious day!

2

One day they led Him up Calvary’s mountain,

One day they nailed Him to die on the tree;

Suffering anguish, despised and rejected:

Bearing our sins, my Redeemer is He!

Living, He loved me; dying, He saved me;

Buried, He carried my sins far away;

Rising He justified freely forever:

One day He’s coming—

Oh, glorious day!

3

One day they left Him alone in the garden,

One day He rested, from suffering free;

Angels came down o’er His tomb to keep vigil;

Hope of the hopeless, my Saviour is He!

Living, He loved me; dying, He saved me;

Buried, He carried my sins far away;

Rising He justified freely forever:

One day He’s coming—

Oh, glorious day!

4

One day the grave could conceal Him no longer,

One day the stone rolled away from the door;

Then he arose, over death He had conquered;

Now is ascended, my Lord evermore!

Living, He loved me; dying, He saved me;

Buried, He carried my sins far away;

Rising He justified freely forever:

One day He’s coming—

Oh, glorious day!

5

One day the trumpet will sound for His coming,

One day the skies with His glory will shine;

Wonderful day, my beloved ones bringing;

Glorious Saviour, this Jesus is mine!

Living, He loved me; dying, He saved me;

Buried, He carried my sins far away;

Rising He justified freely forever:

One day He’s coming—

Oh, glorious day!

 

377 He Lives

1

I serve a risen Saviour, He’s in the world today;

I know that He is living, whatever men may say;

I see His hand of mercy, I hear His voice of cheer,

And just the time I need Him He’s always near.

He lives, He lives, Christ Jesus lives today!

He walks with me and talks with me along life’s narrow way.

He lives, He lives, salvation to impart!

You ask me how I know He lives? He lives within my heart.

2

In all the world around me I see His loving care,

And though my heart grows weary I never will despair;

I know that He is leading thro’ all the stormy blast,

The day of His appearing will come at last.

He lives, He lives, Christ Jesus lives today!

He walks with me and talks with me along life’s narrow way.

He lives, He lives, salvation to impart!

You ask me how I know He lives? He lives within my heart.

3

Rejoice, rejoice, O Christian lift up your voice and sing

Eternal hallelujahs to Jesus Christ the King!

The Hope of all who seek Him, the Help of all who find,

None other is so loving, so good and kind.

He lives, He lives, Christ Jesus lives today!

He walks with me and talks with me along life’s narrow way.

He lives, He lives, salvation to impart!

You ask me how I know He lives? He lives within my heart.
