8.7.8.7.


1
CHRIST is risen! Hallelujah!
Where, O death, thy victory?
He is risen and ascended
Far above all mortal eye.
2
He is risen, who has suffered;
All sin's weight for us He bore.
He is risen and He liveth
Even now for evermore.
3
He is risen! glorious message
From the angel to His own;
Now the sepulchre is empty,
And He's seated on the throne.
4
He is risen! O how precious
Was the lonley Corn of Wheat!
Once in death, but now in glory,
Thousands like Him, for Him meet.
5
He is risen! glorious Firstfruits,
First-begotten from the dead!
Thus to be to His assembly
Over all things now as head.

Mrs. L. Sadell (1832-1903), fr. Swedish
