Every year we remember the suffering and death of Jesus, and His glorious resurrection on Easter morning. This modern hymn by Caroline Cobb recounts not only the historical truth of Christ's resurrection, but also proclaims our hope and confidence in the significance of that resurrection. It means something for us. Our resurrection is bound up with His. And this is something to sing about! 

 

He is Risen

He is risen, He is risen,
And the stone is rolled away
He is risen, He is risen,
Proven by the empty grave
Touch his wounds, his hands, his sides,
And leave all your doubts behind
He is risen, He is risen,
He is risen and alive!

Death is beaten, sin is vanquished,
God’s just wrath is satisfied
Christ is risen, Christ exalted,
Seated at the Father’s side
His body torn, our living way,
Our living hope, His body raised
He is risen, He is risen,
He is risen from the grave!

He is risen, He is risen,
This is all my hope and stay
He is risen, He is risen,
He is risen from the grave!

Jesus risen is returning,
We are longing for the day
When the King will bring the kingdom,
For this blessed hope we wait
The trumpet sounds and we are changed,
And we will see him face to face
Jesus risen, Jesus risen,
Jesus risen from the grave

The trumpet sounds and we are changed,
And death itself will pass away
We are risen, with him risen,
Fully risen from the grave
We are risen, with him risen,
We are risen from the grave
