Lyrics for above hymn(s)

Christ, the Lord, is risen today

Author: Charles Wesley

Christ, the Lord, is risen today,
Sons of men and angels say,
Raise your joys and triumphs high,
Sing, ye heavens, and earth, reply,
Love's redeeming work is done,
Fought the fight, the battle won,
Lo! the Sun's eclipse is over,
Lo! He sets in blood no more.

Lives again our glorious King,
Where, O death, is now thy sting?
Once He died our souls to save,
Where thy victory, O grave?
Soar we now where Christ hath led,
Following our exalted Head,
Made like Him, like Him we rise,
Ours the cross, the grave, the skies.

Come, ye thankful people, come

Author: Henry Alford

Come, ye thankful people, come, raise the song of harvest home;
All is safely gathered in, ere the winter storms begin.
God our Maker doth provide for our wants to be supplied;
Come to God’s own temple, come, raise the song of harvest home.

All the world is God’s own field, fruit unto His praise to yield;
Wheat and tares together sown unto joy or sorrow grown.
First the blade and then the ear, then the full corn shall appear;
Lord of harvest, grant that we wholesome grain and pure may be.

For the Lord our God shall come, and shall take His harvest home;
From His field shall in that day all offenses purge away,
Giving angels charge at last in the fire the tares to cast;
But the fruitful ears to store in His garner evermore.

Even so, Lord, quickly come, bring Thy final harvest home;
Gather Thou Thy people in, free from sorrow, free from sin,
There, forever purified, in Thy garner to abide;
Come, with all Thine angels come, raise the glorious harvest home.

Please note:
The above recordings may not match your hymn-book lyrics exactly. This is because some tunes come in many versions (changed timings, additional notes, different harmonies etc). You are advised to check the various recordings to find the one that suits best your requirements.

You can use programs like Audacity and Song Surgeon to adjust the tempo, pitch and number of verses in the MP3 files.

If you feel the linked tune is the wrong tune (I could have made a mistake in creating the Hymn_Code), please e_mail me with the details (Hymnbook name, and hymn number, and what you think is the problem).
