Rise: The Great Fifty Days 18

0

The Lord of Life is ris’n indeed,

To death deliver’d in your stead;

His rise proclaims your sins for given,

And shows the living way to heaven.

 

Haste then, ye souls that first believe,

Who dare the Gospel-Word receive,

Your faith with joyful hearts confess,

Be bold, be JESUS’ witnesses

 

Go tell the followers of your Lord

Their JESUS is to life restor’d;

 

Charles Wesley, 1707-1788, Hymns for our Lord’s Resurrection, #1.
