Representative Text

1 Hear what the voice from heaven declares
To those in Christ who die:
Released from all their earthly cares,
They'll reign with Him on high.

2 Then why lament departed friends,
Or shake at death's alarms?
Death's but the servant Jesus sends
to call us to His arms.

3 If sin be pardon'd, we're secure,
Death hath no sting beside;
The law gave sin its strength and power,
But Christ, our Ransom, died.

4 The grave of all His saints He bless'd,
When in the grave He lay:
and, rising thence, their hopes He raised
To everlasting day.

5 Then joyfully, while life we have,
To Christ, our Life, we'll sing,
"Where is thy victory, O grave?
And where, O death, they sting?"
