Text
He Is Risen Indeed!
J.A.C. Redford (1953- )

The Lord, our Lord is risen,
Is risen from the dead.
The Lord, our Lord is risen,
And crushed is the serpent’s head.
He that descended below all things
Is risen with healing in His wings.
The Lord, our Lord is risen,
He is risen indeed!

The Lord, our Lord is risen,
Is risen from the grave.
The Lord, our Lord is risen.
No longer to sin must we be enslaved.
He sets the suffering captives free,
Makes the lame to walk, and the blind to see.
The Lord, our Lord is risen,
He is risen indeed!

He is risen, He is risen,
He is risen indeed!

He’s risen from the grave
To dwell in flesh and bone,
Eternally to save
And bring His people home.
