     1 Now upon the first day of the week, very early in the morning, they came unto the sepulchre, bringing the spices which they had prepared, and certain others with them. 2 And they found the stone rolled away from the sepulchre. 3 And they entered in, and found not the body of the Lord Jesus. 4 And it came to pass, as they were much perplexed thereabout, behold, two men stood by them in shining garments: 5 And as they were afraid, and bowed down their faces to the earth, they said unto them, Why seek ye the living among the dead? 6 He is not here, but is risen: remember how he spake unto you when he was yet in Galilee, 7 Saying, The Son of man must be delivered into the hands of sinful men, and be crucified, and the third day rise again. 8 And they remembered his words, 9 And returned from the sepulchre, and told all these things unto the eleven, and to all the rest. 10 It was Mary Magdalene, and Joanna, and Mary the mother of James, and other women that were with them, which told these things unto the apostles. 11 And their words seemed to them as idle tales, and they believed them not. 12 Then arose Peter, and ran unto the sepulchre; and stooping down, he beheld the linen clothes laid by themselves, and departed, wondering in himself at that which was come to pass.(KJV)

1. He’s risen, he’s risen, Christ Jesus, the Lord; 
He opened Death’s prison, The incarnate, Word. 
Break forth, hosts of heaven, in jubilant song 
While earth, sea, and mountain the paean prolong. 

2. The foe was triumphant when on Calvary 
The Lord of creation was nailed to the tree. 
In Satan’s domain did the hosts shout and jeer, 
For Jesus was slain, whom the evil ones fear. 

3. But short was their triumph, the Savior arose, 
And death, hell, and Satan He vanquished, His foes; 
The conquering Lord lifts his banner on high. 
He lives, yea, he lives, and will nevermore die. 

4. Oh, where is your sting, death? We fear thee no more; 
Christ rose, and now open is fair Eden’s door. 
For all our transgressions His blood does atone; 
Redeemed and forgiven, we now are His own. 

5. Then sing your hosannas and raise your glad voice; 
Proclaim the blest tidings that all may rejoice. 
Laud, honor, and praise to the Lamb that was slain; 
Who siteth in glory, and ever shall reign.

He’s Risen, He’s Risen
