Story Behind The Hymn, “Christ The Lord Is Risen Today”

The whole system of Christianity rests upon the truth that Jesus Christ rose from the grave. This resurrection hymn Christ the Lord is Risen Today has been one of the church’s most popular Easter hymns.

It was first written by Charles Wesley one year after his heart-warming experience at the Aldersgate Hall in London, England, in 1738. This hymn was written by Charles for the first service in the Wesleyan Chapel in London. That chapel was first a deserted iron foundry. It became known as the Foundry Meeting House.
