If a man die
Shall he live again?
Or shall he just lie?
Is this the end?

Now, what do you suppose?
Do you know Jesus Christ?
In surety, He arose
To give us all new life

This victory was made
He atoned for us
Overcoming death in days
He resurrected, thus

Full of life and breath…
What was required He kept
He opened the gates of death
And awoke those who slept

Now is a time to prepare
For that great and dreadful day
When at our past we’ll stare
And confess- He is the Way

He offers us peace and rest
If we repent and turn
To Him- How we are blessed!
So listen well… and learn!

Is our reason to hope on the morrow
He knowing the pain of death and separation
Is our Redeemer and Author of our salvation

For the souls of all mankind

In all of human history
He took up His body and came forth
