     1 Thus saith the LORD, Where is the bill of your mother’s divorcement, whom I have put away? or which of my creditors is it to whom I have sold you? Behold, for your iniquities have ye sold yourselves, and for your transgressions is your mother put away. 2 Wherefore, when I came, was there no man? when I called, was there none to answer? Is my hand shortened at all, that it cannot redeem? or have I no power to deliver? behold, at my rebuke I dry up the sea, I make the rivers a wilderness: their fish stinketh, because there is no water, and dieth for thirst. 3 I clothe the heavens with blackness, and I make sackcloth their covering.

     4 The Lord GOD hath given me the tongue of the learned, that I should know how to speak a word in season to him that is weary: he wakeneth morning by morning, he wakeneth mine ear to hear as the learned. 5 The Lord GOD hath opened mine ear, and I was not rebellious, neither turned away back. 6 I gave my back to the smiters, and my cheeks to them that plucked off the hair: I hid not my face from shame and spitting.(KJV)

1. Alleluia! Alleluia! Alleluia! 
The strife is o’er, the battle done; 
Now is the Victor’s triumph won; 
Now be the song of praise begun. 

2. Death’s mightiest powers have done their worst, 
And Jesus hath His foes dispersed; 
Let shouts of praise and joy outburst. 

3. On the third morn He rose again 
Glorious in majesty to reign; 
Oh, let us swell the joyful strain! 

4. He closed the yawning gates of hell; 
The bars from heaven’s high portals fell. 
Let songs of praise His triumph tell. 

5. Lord, by the stripes which wounded Thee. 
From death’s dread sting Thy servants free 
That we may live and sing to Thee.
