“Christ the Lord is Risen Today” #Easter #Music

Note: Please visit post for audio player.

Charles Wesley’s well-known hymn is based on an older Bohemian hymn, whose author is unknown. The version we know today was written by Wesley, co-founder of the Methodist movement, in 1739. The original Bohemian title was “Jesus Christ is Risen Today,” while Wesley’s title was “Hymn for Easter Day.” More recently, it’s most often known by its first line, “Christ the Lord is Risen Today.”

Enjoy this lovely hymn, played on lyre, and have a blessed and happy Easter!
