Click to listen to the music of Yes, The Redeemer Rose and sing along!
Yes, the Redeemer rose, the Savior left the dead
And o'er our hellish foes high raised His conquering head
In wild dismay the guards around
Fall to the ground and sink away.
Lo! the angelic bands in full assembly meet
To wait His high commands and worship at His feet
Joyful they come, and wing their way
From realms of day to see His tomb.
Then back to Heav'n they fly and the glad tidings bear
Hark! as they soar on high, what music fills the air!
Their anthems say, "Jesus, Who bled
Hath left the dead, He rose today."
Ye mortals, catch the sound, redeemed by Him from hell
And send the echo round the globe on which you dwell
Transported, cry, "Jesus, Who bled
Hath left the dead, no more to die."
All hail! triumphant Lord, Who sav'st us with Thy blood
Wide be Thy Name adored, Thou rising, reigning God!
With Thee we rise, with Thee we reign
And empires gain beyond the skies.
The Gospel song, "Yes, The Redeemer Rose" was written by Phillip Doddridge in 1775.
