Christ’s Resurrection and Ascension. Heb. 2. 14; Eph. 4. 8; 1 Cor. 15. 54

J. Hart    L.M.

1
Ye Christians, hear the joyful news,
Death has received a deadly bruise;
Our Lord has made his empire fall,
And conquered him that conquered all.

2
Though doomed are all men once to die,
Yet we by faith death’s power defy;
We soon shall feel his bands unbound,
Awakened by the Archangel’s sound.

3
The trump of God shall rend the rocks,
And open adamantine locks;
Come forth the dead from death’s dark dome,
And Jesus call his ransomed home.
