Christ the Lord is risen today, Alleluia!
If you’ve ever been to church on Easter Sunday, those words are probably familiar to you. They’ve been sung in Easter worship services since 1739 when a young Charles Wesley first introduced the beloved hymn to the body of Christ at the Foundry Meeting House.
Sons of men and angels say, Alleluia!
Are you among the sons of men and women who can say he is risen, he is risen indeed? Or, do you just show up for church on Easter Sunday as a yearly habit and then go home to eat ham with your family?
Raise your joys and triumphs high
Sing, ye heav’ns, and earth, reply, Alleluia!
He is risen! He is risen indeed!
