to life, Immortal in the skies.
Behold! what heavenly prophets sung,
Is now at last fulfilled.
That Death should yield his ancient reign,
And vanquished, quit the field.
Let faith exalt her joyful voice,
And thus begin to sing:
O Grave! where is thy triumph now?
And where, o Death! thy sting?
Thy sting was sin, and concious guilt;
'Twas this that armed thy dart;
The law gave sin its strength and force ,
To pierce the sinner's heart.
But God, whose name be ever blessed,
Disarms that foe we dread,
And makes us conquerors when we die
Through Christ our living head.
Then steadfast let us still remain,
Though dangers rise around,
And in the work prescribed by God,
Yet more and more abound;
Assured that though we labour now.
We labour not in vain;
But through the grace of heaven's great Lord,
The eternal crown shall gain.
