Christ is Now Arisen

Now the song is begun, for the battle is done.
And the victory won; Now the foe is scattered;
Death's dark prison shattered: Sing of joy;
And today raise the lay, Christ is now arisen!
They that followed in pain shall now follow in reign,
And the crown shall obtain; They were sore assaulted,
They shall be exalted: Sing of joy;
Earth and skis bid it rise, Christ is now arisen!
For the foe nevermore can approach to that shore,
When the conflict is over; there is joy supernal;
There is peace eternal; Sing of life;
Earth and skies bid it rise, Christ is now arisen!
Then be brave, then be true, ye despised and ye few,
For the crown is for you: Christ, who went before you,
Spreads His buckler over you, Sing of strength;
Earth and skies bid it rise, Christ is now arisen!
Lo, the victory is won, the foe is scattered,
Death's dark prison shattered! Hallelujah;
Earth and skies bid it rise, Christ is now arisen!
Hallelujah! Come today raise the lay, Christ is now arisen!
