Forth from God’s throne, into this world of woe,
Came God’s own Son, salvation to bestow;
Nailed to the cross in pain and agony,
Laid in the tomb to save both you and me.
Jesus arose! Praise His holy name!
Jesus arose! Death He overcame!
An angel rolled away the stone,
My Lord arose to save His own,
And now He reigns upon His throne!
Three days He lay within that dark domain,
Then with new life, forth from the tomb He came;
Christ has the key; oh, death, where is thy sting?
Our Lord doth live! oh, let your praises ring!
Tho’ He’s on high, He’s coming back some day,
Then from this earth, He’ll carry us away;
E’en tho’ we die, we know we’ll rise again,
For Christ arose, our precious souls to win!
