1
Jesus, the Lord, is risen
 
Triumphant o'er the grave;
 
For us He burst the prison,
 
Almighty now to save:
 
Captivity is captive led,
 
Since Jesus liveth that was dead.
1 Corinthians 15:20; 1 Corinthians 15:54-56; Mark 16:3-6; Hebrews 7:25; Ephesians 4:8; Revelation 1:18
2
Who to our charge shall lay
 
Iniquity or guilt?
 
Our sin is done away
 
Since Jesus' blood was spilt.
 
Captivity is captive led,
 
Since Jesus liveth that was dead.
Romans 8:33; 1 Peter 1:18-19
3
Who now accuseth them
 
Whom God hath justified?
 
Or who shall those condemn
 
For whom the Surety died?
 
Captivity is captive led,
 
Since Jesus liveth that was dead.
Romans 8:33; Romans 8:34; Hebrews 7:22
4
Christ hath the ransom paid,
 
The wondrous work is done;
 
On Him our help is laid,
 
The victory is won.
 
Captivity is captive led,
 
Since Jesus liveth that was dead.

“So when this corruptible shall have put on incorruption, and this mortal shall have put on immortality, then shall be brought to pass the saying that is written, Death is swallowed up in victory. O death, where is thy sting? O grave, where is thy victory? The sting of death is sin; and the strength of sin is the law.” (1 Corinthians 15:54-56)
“And they said among themselves, Who shall roll us away the stone from the door of the sepulchre? And when they looked, they saw that the stone was rolled away: for it was very great. And entering into the sepulchre, they saw a young man sitting on the right side, clothed in a long white garment; and they were affrighted. And he saith unto them, Be not affrighted: Ye seek Jesus of Nazareth, which was crucified: he is risen; he is not here: behold the place where they laid him.” (Mark 16:3-6)
