Christ is alive!

Tune: Finlandia 11 10 11 10 11 10

1. Christ is alive! the new day dawns with promise;
An empty tomb, the stone is rolled away;
With life renewed, the flame is burning brightly;
The light of love has overcome the grave.
Sing alleluia, Christ is truly risen!
Sing alleluia, Christ is truly here!

2. Christ is the Way, and we should surely follow;
Through sun and storm he’ll call us to his side
To be as one and, joined with all creation,
We’ll work for peace to make his Kingdom come.
Sing alleluia, Christ is truly risen!
Sing alleluia, Christ is truly here!

3. Christ is the Truth, and we should seek no other;
His words of love will keep us ever near;
We’ll see his face in every friend and stranger;
His healing touch will soothe away our fear.
Sing alleluia, Christ is truly risen!
Sing alleluia, Christ is truly here!

4. Christ is the Life, and we should live it fully;
We’ll share his cup and eat his living bread
As he has loved so we should love each other,
So all the world will know we are his friends.
Sing alleluia, Christ is truly risen!
Sing alleluia, Christ is truly here!
