The Resurrection

I am Alpha, says the Savior

Published in 3 hymnals

Full Text

1 I am Alpha, says the Savior;
I Omega likewise am:
I was dead, and live for ever,
God Almighty and the Lamb.
In the Lord is our perfection,
And in him our boast we'll make:
We shall share his resurrection,
If we of his death partake.

2 Ye that die without repentance,
Ye must rise when Christ appears,
Rise to hear your dreadful sentence,
While the saints rejoice in theirs:
You to dwell with fiends infernal,
They with Jesus Christ to reign;
They go into life eternal,
You to everlasting pain.

3 Bold rebellion, base backsliding,
Stop your course, reflect with dread;
In destruction there's no hiding,
Death and hell give up their dead:
Every sea, and lake and river
Shall restore their dead to view:
Shout for gladness O believer;
Christ is risen, so shall you.
