94. The Lord Is Risen Indeed

S.M.
by T. Kelly
1
The Lord is risen indeed,
 
And all His work performed!
 
The captive Surety now is freed,
 
And death, our foe, disarmed.
“And when all things shall be subdued unto him, then shall the Son also himself be subject unto him that put all things under him, that God may be all in all.” (1 Corinthians 15:28)
“Saying, The Lord is risen indeed, and hath appeared to Simon.” (Luke 24:34)
“I have glorified thee on the earth: I have finished the work which thou gavest me to do.” (John 17:4)
2
The Lord is risen indeed:
 
He lives—to die no more;
 
He lives—His people's cause to plead,
 
Whose curse and shame He bore.
3
The Lord is risen indeed:
 
And death has lost its prey:
 
And with Him all the ransomed seed
 
Shall reign in endless day.
