CHRIST IS RISEN!



   Christ The Lord Is Risen Today is one of my all-time favorite hymns!  I absolutely LOVE to play this for worship!!  I grew up singing the original version "Jesus Christ Is Risen Today," a 14th century Latin hymn, translated into English, published in 1709 in Lyra Davidica.  Many hymnals include both hymns separately.

Most of the stanzas of Christ The Lord Is Risen Today were written by Charles Wesley, and the hymn appeared under the title Hymn for Resurrection Day in Hymns and Sacred Songs by Charles and John Wesley in 1739. 

   This is a very upbeat version, performed by PraiseCharts Band
