LXXIV. Why should we fear the powers of Hell

1 Why should we fear the powers of Hell,
Why should we be afraid?
Jesus conquer'd when he fell.
And rose our Lord and head.

2 His tortures and his dying pain,
His sorrows and his grief,
Have bursted the infernal chain,
And purchas'd our relief.

3 Death is in vict'ry swallow'd up,
Our freedom is obtain'd;
And Christ who is our life and hope,
Hath full redemption gain'd.

4 Now he has left his silent tomb,
And prov'd his mighty power;
We shall enjoy the life to come!
With him for ever more.

5 Come let us thank him for his love,
With all we can afford;
With saints on earth and hosts above,
Praise him our Mighty Lord.
