Representative Text

1 JESUS Christ, who came to save,
And overcame the grave,
Is now arisen,
And sin hath bound in prison.
O Lord, have mercy!

2 Who without a sin was found,
Bore our transgressions' wound.
He is our Saviour,
And brings us to God's favor,
O Lord, have mercy!

3 Life and mercy, sin and death,
All in His hands He hath:
He can deliver
All who trust Him forever.
O Lord, have mercy!
