Representative Text

1 It was early Sunday morning,
Near the break of day,
When two angels came from heaven,

That He would be slain,
But upon the third day after
He would rise again;
And although by soldiers guarded,
Watching hour by hour,
He arose triumphant,
Son of God with pow'r.
He arose triumphant,
Son of God with pow'r.

3 He arose to justify us
From the guilt of sin,
And renew and sanctify us
And to help us win
Perfect vict'ry over Satan
And the yawning grave:
Let us trust His power,
He alone can save,
Let us trust His power,
He alone can save.
