S.M.

The Lord is risen indeed,
 
And all His work performed!
 
The captive Surety now is freed,
 
And death, our foe, disarmed.
1 Corinthians 15:28; Luke 24:34; John 17:4; John 19:30; 1 Corinthians 15:54-56; Hebrews 2:14

The Lord is risen indeed:
 
He lives—to die no more;
 
He lives—His people's cause to plead,
 
Whose curse and shame He bore.
Romans 6:9; Hebrews 7:25; Galatians 3:13; Hebrews 12:2

The Lord is risen indeed:
 
And death has lost its prey:
 
And with Him all the ransomed seed
 
Shall reign in endless day.
