Jesus, The Lord, Is Risen

by Thomas Haweis (1732-1820)


Set:
Tune: Darwall 6.6.6.6.8.8.


1 JESUS, the Lord, is risen
Triumphant o'er the grave;
For us He burst the prison,
Almighty now to save.
Captivity is captive led,
Since Jesus liveth that was dead.

2 Who to our charge shall lay
Iniquity or guilt?
Our sins are washed away
Since Jesus' blood was spilt.
Captivity is captive led,
Since Jesus liveth that was dead.

3 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 that was dead.

4 Christ has 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 that was dead.
