Death is swallowed up in victory.@1 Corinthians 15:54

William E. Marks, in Festal Chimes, by George C. Hugg, Vol. IV, No. l (Philadelphia, Pennsylvania: George C. Hugg, 1890) (🔊 pdf nwc).

Wake and sing! Jesus from the grave has risen;
Praise His name! unto us a hope is given;
We, some time, will escape from death’s dark prison;
Death is conquered, hallelujah! Christ is ris’n.

Refrain

Sing, sing, sing! make the anthems swell out stronger;
Ring, ring, ring! let the bells now peal out longer;
Sing, sing, sing! let the carols rise forever;
Death is conquered, hallelujah! Christ is ris’n.

Praise the Lord! He has robbed death of its terror,
And from us every fear has gone forever;
Praise the Lord! we will glory in Him ever;
Death is conquered, hallelujah! Christ is ris’n.

Refrain

Praise His name! He’s the hope of our salvation;
Praise ye Him! every land and every nation,
Join ye now in the song of jubilation;
Death is conquered, hallelujah! Christ is ris’n.
