Title: Christ Is Alive!
Composer: rev.Thomas Williams, 1789 Harm. Lowell Mason (1792-1872)
Author: Brian Wren, 1968;
1. Christ is alive! Let Christians sing. The cross stands empty to the sky. Let streets and homes with praises ring. Love, drowned in death, shall never die. 2. Christ is alive! No longer bound To distant years in Palestine, But saving, healing, here and now, And touching every place and time. 3. Not throned afar, remotely high, Untouched, unmoved by human pains, But daily, in the midst of life, Our Savior in the God-head reigns. 4. In every insult, rift, and war, Where color, scorn, or wealth divide, Christ suffers still, yet loves the more, And lives, where even hope has died. 5. Christ is alive, and comes to bring Good news to this and every age, Till earth and sky and ocean ring With joy, with justice, love, and praise.
