Representative Text

1 The happy morn is come!
The Saviour leaves the grave!
He triumphs o'er the tomb,
Omnipotent to save.
Captivity is captive led,
Since Jesus liveth that was dead,
Since Jesus liveth that was dead.

2 Who to our charge shall lay
Iniquity and guilt?
The curse is done away
By Him whose blood was spilt;
Captivity is captive led,
Since Jesus liveth that was dead,
Since Jesus liveth that was dead.

3 Conquered is Death and Hell;
Believers now are free;
The glorious tidings tell,
Bear them o'er land and sea:
Captivity is captive led,
Since Jesus liveth that was dead,
Since Jesus liveth that was dead.

4 All hail, blest Saviour, hail!
The Resurrection, Thou!
Thy kingdom ne'er shall fail;
To Thee shall nations bow.
Captivity is captive led,
Since Jesus liveth that was dead,
Since Jesus liveth that was dead.

Amen.
