Our hope also, like Paul’s, is in the resurrection of the dead. For this we would gladly stand trial and suffer.

     10 Then Paul, after that the governor had beckoned unto him to speak, answered, Forasmuch as I know that thou hast been of many years a judge unto this nation, I do the more cheerfully answer for myself: 11 Because that thou mayest understand, that there are yet but twelve days since I went up to Jerusalem for to worship. 12 And they neither found me in the temple disputing with any man, neither raising up the people, neither in the synagogues, nor in the city: 13 Neither can they prove the things whereof they now accuse me. 14 But this I confess unto thee, that after the way which they call heresy, so worship I the God of my fathers, believing all things which are written in the law and in the prophets: 15 And have hope toward God, which they themselves also allow, that there shall be a resurrection of the dead, both of the just and unjust. 16 And herein do I exercise myself, to have always a conscience void of offence toward God, and toward men.(KJV)

1. The day of resurrection, 
Earth, tell it out abroad, 
The Passover of gladness. 
The Passover of God. 
From death to life eternal, 
From this world to the sky, 
Our Christ hath brought us over 
With hymns of victory. 

2. Our hearts be pure from evil 
That we may see aright 
The Lord in rays eternal 
Of resurrection light 
And, listening to His accents, 
May hear, so calm and plain, 
His own “All hail!” and, hearing, 
May raise the victor strain. 

3. Now let the heavens be joyful, 
Let earth her song begin, 
Let all the world keep triumph 
And all that is therein. 
Let all things, seen and unseen, 
Their notes of gladness blend; 
For Christ the Lord hath risen,– 
Our joy, that hath no end.
