1 Christ from the Dead is rais'd, and made
the First-Fruits of the Tomb;
For, as by man came Death, by Man
did Resurrection come.
2 For, as in Adam, all Mankind
did Guilt and Death deride;
So, by the Righteousness of Christ,
shall all be made alive.
3 If then ye risen are with Christ,
seek only how to get
The Things that are above, where Christ
at God's right Hand is set.
