The God of peace who from the dead

Representative Text

1. THE God of peace, who from the dead
Hath raised our dying Lord,
And, through the covenant in his blood,
Our souls to peace, restored:—

2. Confirm our hearts, in each good work,
To do his perfect will;
That, made well pleasing in his sight,
Our course with joy we fill.

3. So shall we, in his heavenly courts,
Hereafter, ever live;
And to his name, through Jesus Christ,
Eternal glory give.
