Hallelujah, He Is Risen!

Yesterday (Easter Sunday), we joined the KM for a joint Easter service. It was so nice to have the English translations up with the Korean lyrics to the songs and hymns we sang. One of them, I knew the melody because it was so familiar from childhood. But I never knew exactly what the song was about! So with a few English lines written down, I tracked it down. What an awesome hymn! I felt my heart rejoice as we sang this, as I sang the words and finally understood what it was saying. I’m putting the lyrics here for future reference. I don’t know if we’ll sing it in LEM if we have our own Easter services in the future, but I will try to remember the song.

Hallelujah, He Is Risen!
Written by Philip P. Bliss

Hallelujah, He is risen!
Jesus is gone up on high!
Burst the bars of death asunder,
Angels shout and men reply:
He is risen, He is risen,
Living now no more to die.
He is risen, He is risen,
Living now no more to die.

Hallelujah, He is risen!
Our exalted Head to be;
Sends the witness of the Spirit
That our advocate is He:
He is risen, He is risen,
Justified in Him are we.
He is risen, He is risen,
Justified in Him are we.

Hallelujah, He is risen!
Death for aye hath lost his sting,
Christ, Himself the Resurrection,
From the grave His own will bring:
He is risen, He is risen,
Living Lord and coming King.
He is risen, He is risen,
Living Lord and coming King.
