7 Hearken unto me, ye that know righteousness, the people in whose heart is my law; fear ye not the reproach of men, neither be ye afraid of their revilings. 8 For the moth shall eat them up like a garment, and the worm shall eat them like wool: but my righteousness shall be for ever, and my salvation from generation to generation.

     9 Awake, awake, put on strength, O arm of the LORD; awake, as in the ancient days, in the generations of old. Art thou not it that hath cut Rahab, and wounded the dragon? 10 Art thou not it which hath dried the sea, the waters of the great deep; that hath made the depths of the sea a way for the ransomed to pass over? 11 Therefore the redeemed of the LORD shall return, and come with singing unto Zion; and everlasting joy shall be upon their head: they shall obtain gladness and joy; and sorrow and mourning shall flee away. 12 I, even I, am he that comforteth you: who art thou, that thou shouldest be afraid of a man that shall die, and of the son of man which shall be made as grass; 13 And forgettest the LORD thy maker, that hath stretched forth the heavens, and laid the foundations of the earth; and hast feared continually every day because of the fury of the oppressor, as if he were ready to destroy? and where is the fury of the oppressor? 14 The captive exile hasteneth that he may be loosed, and that he should not die in the pit, nor that his bread should fail. 15 But I am the LORD thy God, that divided the sea, whose waves roared: The LORD of hosts is his name. 16 And I have put my words in thy mouth, and I have covered thee in the shadow of mine hand, that I may plant the heavens, and lay the foundations of the earth, and say unto Zion, Thou art my people.(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.
