In The Tomb

In the tomb so cold they laid Him
Death its victim claimed
Powers of hell, they could not hold Him
Back to life He came!

Christ is risen! (Christ is risen!)
Death has been conquered. (Death has been conquered.)
Christ is risen! (Christ is risen!)
He shall reign for ever

Hell had spent its fury on Him
Left Him crucified
Yet, by blood, He boldly conquered
Sin and death defied

Now the fear of death is broken
Love has won the crown
Prisoners of the darkness listen
Walls are tumbling down

Raised from death to heaven ascending
Love's exalted King
Let His song of joy, unending
Through the nations ring!
