Representative Text

1 Jesus, who died a world to save,
Revives and rises from the grave,
By His almighty power;
From sin, and death, and hell set free,
He captive leads captivity,
And lives to die no more.

2 Lo! how He bursts the bonds of death,
And reassumes His vital breath,
To make our title good;
May all our souls to Heav’n aspire,
In thought, in will, in strong desire,
To earthly pleasure dead.

3 With thankful hearts we look and see
Our Savior clothed with majesty
Triumphant o’er the tomb;
Yet though our Lord is honored thus,
Still all His thoughts are fixed on us,
He’ll take us to His home.

4 His church is all His joy and crown,
He looks with love and pity down
On her He did redeem;
He tastes her joys, He feels her woes,
And prays that she may spoil her foes,
And ever reign with Him.
