20 And the multitude cometh together again, so that they could not so much as eat bread. 21 And when his friends heard of it, they went out to lay hold on him: for they said, He is beside himself.

     22 And the scribes which came down from Jerusalem said, He hath Beelzebub, and by the prince of the devils casteth he out devils. 23 And he called them unto him, and said unto them in parables, How can Satan cast out Satan? 24 And if a kingdom be divided against itself, that kingdom cannot stand. 25 And if a house be divided against itself, that house cannot stand. 26 And if Satan rise up against himself, and be divided, he cannot stand, but hath an end. 27 No man can enter into a strong man’s house, and spoil his goods, except he will first bind the strong man; and then he will spoil his house.(KJV)

1. Christ the Lord is risen again! 
Christ has broken death’s strong chain! 
Hark, the angels shout for joy 
Singing evermore on high: 

2. He who gave for us His life. 
Who for us endured the strife, 
Is our Paschal Lamb today. 
We, too, sing for joy and say: 

3. He who bore all pain and loss 
Comfortless upon the cross 
Lives in glory now on high, 
Pleads for us and hears our cry: 

4. He whose path no records tell 
Hath descended into hell; 
He the strong man armed hath bound 
And in highest heaven is crowned. 

5. He who slumbered in the grave 
Is exalted now to save; 
Now through Christendom it rings 
That the Lamb is King of kings. 

6. Now He bids us tell abroad 
How the lost may be restored, 
How the penitent forgiven, 
How we, too, may enter heaven. 

7. Thou our Paschal Lamb indeed, 
Christ, today Thy people feed; 
Take our sins and guilt away 
That we all may sing for aye:
