Jesus, The Lord, Is Risen

By T. Haweis (1734-1820)

Meter: 6.6.6.6.8.8.

Jesus, the Lord, is ris'n
Triumphant o'er the grave;
For us He burst the prison,
Almighty now to save!
Captivity is captive led,
Since Jesus liveth who was dead.

Who to our charge shall lay
Our sins before our God?
Since all are washed away
In Jesus' precious blood.
Captivity is captive led,
Since Jesus liveth who was dead.

Who now accuseth them
Whom God hath justified?
Or who shall those condemn
For whom the Surety died?
Captivity is captive led,
Since Jesus liveth who was dead.

Christ hath the ransom paid,
The wondrous work is done;
On Him our help is laid,
The victory is won.
Captivity is captive led,
Since Jesus liveth who was dead.
