6,6,6,6,8,8.
by Haweis, 1792
1
Jesus, the Lord, is risen
 
Triumphant o'er the grave;
 
For us He burst the prison,
 
Almighty now to save:
 
Captivity is captive led,
 
Since Jesus liveth that was dead.
2
Who to our charge shall lay
 
Iniquity or guilt?
 
Our sin is done away
 
Since Jesus' blood was spilt.
 
Captivity is captive led,
 
Since Jesus liveth that was dead.
3
Who now accuseth them
 
Whom God hath justified?
 
Or who shall those condemn
 
For whom the Surety died?
 
Captivity is captive led,
 
Since Jesus liveth that was dead.
4
Christ hath the ransom paid,
 
The wondrous work is done;
 
On Him our help is laid,
 
The victory is won.
 
Captivity is captive led,
 
Since Jesus liveth that was dead.
