Christ Jesus Lay in Death's Strong Bands

Author: Martin Luther; Richard Massie Meter: 8.7.8.7.7.8.7.4 Appears in 49 hymnals Scripture: Acts 2:24 Lyrics: 1 Christ Jesus lay in death's strong bands, for our offenses given; but now at God's right hand he stands and brings us life from heaven; therefore let us joyful be and sing to God right thankfully loud songs of hallelujah. Hallelujah! 2 It was a strange and dreadful strife when life and death contended; the victory remained with life, the reign of death was ended; Holy Scripture plainly saith that death is swallowed up by death, his sting is lost forever. Hallelujah! 3 Here the true Paschal Lamb we see, whom God so freely gave us; he died on the accursed tree - So strong his love! — to save us. See, his blood doth mark our door; faith points to it, death passes o'er, and Satan cannot harm us. Hallelujah! 4 So let us keep the festival whereto the Lord invites us; Christ is himself the Joy of all, the Sun that warms and lights us. By his grace he doth impart eternal sunshine to the heart; the night of sin is ended. Hallelujah! 5 Then let us feast this joyful day on Christ, the Bread of heaven; the Word of grace hath purged away the old and evil leaven. Christ alone our souls will feed, he is our meat and drink indeed; faith lives upon no other. Hallelujah!
