He Is Risen!

Lyrics

O trumpet sound a vict’ry call!
And tongues proclaim good news for all:
He is risen! He is risen!
O! Let a thousand hymns break forth,
Proclaiming our Redeemer’s worth!
Give Him glory! Give Him glory!
He is risen! He is risen!
Hallelujah!

He who was slain on our behalf,
Suff’ring beneath His Father’s wrath:
He is risen! He is risen!
He who was hung upon the tree,
Rose from the tomb in victory!
Give Him glory! Give Him glory!
He is risen! He is risen!
Hallelujah!

O Christian, are you filled with gloom?
Then look inside the empty tomb!
He is risen! He is risen!
Here there is hope for ev’ry fear!
Here there is joy for ev’ry tear!
Give Him glory! Give Him glory!
He is risen! He is risen!
Hallelujah!

O! Let the nations sing the fame
Of Christ the Lamb who once was slain!
He is risen! He is risen!
Now we await the coming day,
When all those raised in Christ will say:
Give Him glory! Give Him glory!
He is risen! He is risen!
Hallelujah!

Praise Him who rules eternity!
Praise the incarnate deity!
He is risen! He is risen!
O! Praise the Lamb upon the throne
And glorify His name alone!
Give Him glory! Give Him glory!
He is risen! He is risen!
Hallelujah!

This is a fantastic hymn Eric. We used it Resurrection Sunday. My favorite lines are in the third verse:

O Christian, are you filled with gloom?
Then look inside the empty tomb!

Jesus' resurrection certainly is a source of joy, perhaps THE source of joy.
