The Lord is Ris’n (words only)
The Lord is ris’n; and death’s dark judgment flood
Is passed, in Him who bought us with His blood.
The Lord is ris’n: we stand beyond the doom
Of all our sin, through Jesus’ empty tomb.
The Lord is ris’n: with Him we also rose,
And in His grave see vanquished all our foes.
The Lord is ris’n: beyond the judgment land,
In Him, in resurrection-life we stand.
The Lord is ris’n; and now redeemed to God,
We tread the desert which His feet have trod.
The Lord is ris’n: the sanctu’ry’s our place,
Where now we dwell before the Father’s face.
The Lord is ris’n: the Lord has gone before.
We long to see Him, and to sin no more.
The Lord is ris’n: our triumph shout shall be, –
“Thou hast prevailed! Thy people, Lord are free!"
