Christ in Risen!

Christ is risen, Christ is risen!Tell it out with joyful voice:Christ has burst the three days’ prison;let the whole wide earth rejoice:death is conquered, we are free,Christ has won the victory. Come you sad and fearful-hearted,with glad smile and radiant face!Death’s long shadows have departed;Jesus’ woes are over now,and the passion that he boresin and pain can reach no more. Come, with glad and holy hymning,hail our God’s triumphant day;not one blackened cloud is dimmingall this glorioius morning ray,breaking o’er the purple east,symbol of our Easter feast. Christ is risen, Christ is risen!Christ has opened heaven’s gate;we are free from sin’s dark prison,risen to a holier state;and a brighter Easter beamon our longing eyes shall stream. Words: Cecil Frances Alexander (19thC)Music: Unser Herrscher, Joachim Neander (17thC)Sequence: Dall Forsythe, Church of St. John the EvangelistFrom the Daily Office … Lord I’m ready … help me go out now and live in this great reality.
