268. Gabriel's Message Does Away

1 Gabriel's message does away
Satan's curse and Satan's sway,
out of darkness brings our Day:

so, behold, all the gates of heaven unfold.

2 He that comes despised shall reign;
he that cannot die, be slain;
death by death its death shall gain: [Refrain]

3 Weakness shall the strong confound;
by the hands, in grave clothes wound,
Adam's chains shall be unbound. [Refrain]
