11 In whom also ye are circumcised with the circumcision made without hands, in putting off the body of the sins of the flesh by the circumcision of Christ: 12 Buried with him in baptism, wherein also ye are risen with him through the faith of the operation of God, who hath raised him from the dead.

     13 And you, being dead in your sins and the uncircumcision of your flesh, hath he quickened together with him, having forgiven you all trespasses; 14 Blotting out the handwriting of ordinances that was against us, which was contrary to us, and took it out of the way, nailing it to his cross; 15 And having spoiled principalities and powers, he made a shew of them openly, triumphing over them in it.(KJV)

1. Awake, my heart, with gladness, 
See what today is done, 
Now after gloom and sadness 
Comes forth the glorious Sun! 
My Savior there was laid 
Where our bed must be made 
When to the realms of light 
Our spirit wings its flight. 

2. The Foe in triumph shouted 
When Christ lay in the tomb, 
But, lo, he now is routed, 
His boast is turned to gloom. 
For Christ again is free; 
In glorious victory 
He who is strong to save 
Has triumphed o’er the grave. 

3. This is a sight that gladdens; 
What peace it doth impart! 
Now nothing ever saddens 
The joy within my heart; 
No gloom shall ever shake, 
No foe shall ever take, 
The hope which God’s own Son 
In love for me hath won. 

4. Now hell, its prince, the devil, 
Of all their power are shorn; 
Now I am safe from evil, 
And sin I laugh to scorn. 
Grim death with all his might 
Cannot my soul affright; 
He is a powerless form, 
Howe’er he rave and storm.
