The Lord is risen indeed
(Thomas Kelly/Johannes Thomas Rüegg)

The Lord is risen indeed.

"The Lord is risen indeed." (Luke 24,34)

1. "The Lord is ris'n indeed,"
  and are the tidings true?
Yes, they beheld the Saviour bleed,
  and saw him living too. PDF - Midi

2. "The Lord is ris'n indeed,"
  then Justice asks no more;
Mercy and Truth are now agreed,
  who stood opposed before.

3. "The Lord is ris'n indeed,"
  then is his work performed;
the captive surety now is freed,
  and death, our foe, disarmed.

4. "The Lord is ris'n indeed,"
  then hell has lost his prey;
with him is ris'n the ransomed seed,
  to reign in endless day.

5. "The Lord is ris'n indeed,"
  he lives to die no more;
he lives, the sinner's cause to plead,
  whose curse and shame he bore.

6. "The Lord is ris'n indeed,"
  this yields my soul a plea;
he bore the punishment decreed,
  and satisfied for me.

7. "The Lord is ris'n indeed,"
  attending angels hear.
Up to the courts of heav'n, with speed,
  the joyful tidings bear.

8. Then take your golden lyres,
  and strike each cheerful chord,
join all the bright celestial choirs,
  to sing our risen Lord.

Thomas Kelly, Hymns on various passages of Scripture, ca. 1853, Hymn 29.
