1 The Son of David bowed to die,
For man's transgression stricken;
The Father's arm of power was nigh,
The Son of God to quicken.
Praise Him that He died for men;
Praise Him that He rose again.
2 Death seemed all-conquering when he bound
The Lord of life in prison;
The night of death was nowhere found
When Christ again was risen;
Wherefore praise Him night and day,
Him who took death's sting away.
3 His saints with Him must bow to death,
With Him are raised in spirit,
With Him they dwell above by faith,
Accepted through His merit;
Heaven and earth resound the strain,
Death by Jesus Christ is slain.
The Son of David bowed to die. J. Anstice. [Easter.] Appeared in his posthumous Hymns, published by his widow in 1836, No. 15, in 4 stanzas of 6 lines. It is sometimes given in its full form, and at others abbreviated to 3 stanzas as in Thring's Collection, 1882. It is a spirited hymn and worthy of more attention than it has received.
