The Lord Is Risen Indeed (Narenza – 5 verses) – Organ

Lyrics – 5 verses

Suggested uses: Easter Sunday

The Lord is ris’n indeed,
And are the tidings true?
Yes, we beheld the Saviour bleed,
And saw Him living too.

The Lord is ris’n indeed,
Then justice asks no more;
Mercy and Truth are now agreed,
Who stood opposed before.

The Lord is ris’n indeed,
Then is the work performed;
The captive surely now is freed,
And death, our foe, disarmed.

The Lord is ris’n indeed,
Attending angels hear;
Up to the courts of heav’n, with speed,
The joyful tidings bear.

Then take your golden lyres,
And strike each cheerful chord;
Join all the bright celestial choirs
To sing our risen Lord.

Blest are the pure in heart (Franconia)

Lyrics

Blest are the pure in heart,
For they shall see our God;
The secret of the Lord is theirs;
Their soul is Christ’s abode.

The Lord, Who left the heavens
Our life and peace to bring,
To dwell in lowliness with men
Their Pattern and their King.

Still to the lowly soul
He doth Himself impart;
And for His dwelling and His throne
Chooseth the pure in heart.

Lord, we Thy presence seek;
May ours this blessing be;
Give us a pure and lowly heart,
A temple meet for Thee.
