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.

Ye servants of the Lord (Narenza) – Organ

Lyrics

1. Ye servants of the Lord,
each in his office wait,
observant of his heavenly word,
and watchful at his gate.

2. Let all your lamps be bright,
and trim the golden flame;
gird up your loins as in his sight,
for aweful is his name.

3. Watch! ’tis your Lord’s command,
and while we speak, he’s near;
mark the first signal of his hand,
and ready all appear.

4. O happy servant he
in such a posture found!
he shall his Lord with rapture see,
and be with honour crowned.

5. Christ shall the banquet spread
with his own royal hand,
and raise that faithful servant’s head
amid the angelic band.
