Christ Is Risen

An inspiring song of Easter that rejoices in Mary’s discovery of the empty tomb and celebrates the meeting of the Master and the disciples in the early morning on the shore. A beautiful Alleluia chorus weaves through the song.

Christ is Risen
Words by: Joan Collister
Music by: Robert Collister

It was early in the morning
Of the first and final day.
Alone Mary ventured near his tomb
And heard an angel say.

“Seek ye not Jesus here
For behold he is not dead.
Christ is alive and walks among you
It was done just as he said.”

Alleluia, Christ is Risen.
Alleluia, Christ is Risen.

Moments later we beheld him
While fishing by the sea.
He called us his disciples
And said come dine with me.

There he taught us the final lesson
That takes away all fear.
Life overcoming death,
Can be demonstrated here.
