Verse 1:
D  A/D  D   A/D  Dsus4     D
In the  tomb so  cold they laid Him,
      A   D  G   Asus4  A
Death its victim claimed.

Powers  of  hell, they could not hold Him;
G    D
Back to life He came!
Chorus:
           D      A   D
Men        Christ is risen! 
                   A   D
Women      (Christ is risen!)
            G              D
Men        Death has been conquered. 
            G              D
Women      (Death has been conquered.)
                  A   D
Men        Christ is risen! 
                   A   D
Women      (Christ is risen!)
           G        Bm        Asus4  A  D    Em   Asus4  A  D
Together   He shall reign for e     -   ver.
Verse 2:
Hell had spent its fury on Him,
Left Him crucified.
Yet, by blood, He boldly conquered,
Sin and death defied.
Verse 3:
Now the fear of death is broken,
Love has won the crown.
Prisoners of the darkness listen,
Walls are tumbling down.
Verse 4:
Raised from death to heaven ascending,
Love's exalted King.
Let His song of joy, unending,
Through the nations ring! 

IN THE TOMB SO COLD they laid Him,
Death its victim claimed.
Powers of hell, they could not hold Him;
Back to life He came!

Christ is risen! (Christ is risen!)
Death has been conquered. (Death has been conquered.)
Christ is risen! (Christ is risen!)
He shall reign for ever.

Hell had spent its fury on Him,
Left Him crucified.
Yet, by blood, He boldly conquered,
Sin and death defied.

Now the fear of death is broken,
Love has won the crown.
Prisoners of the darkness listen,
Walls are tumbling down.

Raised from death to heaven ascending,
Love's exalted King.
Let His song of joy, unending,
Through the nations ring!
