     1 Hear ye the word which the LORD speaketh unto you, O house of Israel: 2 Thus saith the LORD, Learn not the way of the heathen, and be not dismayed at the signs of heaven; for the heathen are dismayed at them. 3 For the customs of the people are vain: for one cutteth a tree out of the forest, the work of the hands of the workman, with the ax. 4 They deck it with silver and with gold; they fasten it with nails and with hammers, that it move not. 5 They are upright as the palm tree, but speak not: they must needs be borne, because they cannot go. Be not afraid of them; for they cannot do evil, neither also is it in them to do good. 6 Forasmuch as there is none like unto thee, O LORD; thou art great, and thy name is great in might. 7 Who would not fear thee, O King of nations? for to thee doth it appertain: forasmuch as among all the wise men of the nations, and in all their kingdoms, there is none like unto thee. 8 But they are altogether brutish and foolish: the stock is a doctrine of vanities. 9 Silver spread into plates is brought from Tarshish, and gold from Uphaz, the work of the workman, and of the hands of the founder: blue and purple is their clothing: they are all the work of cunning men. 10 But the LORD is the true God, he is the living God, and an everlasting king: at his wrath the earth shall tremble, and the nations shall not be able to abide his indignation. 11 Thus shall ye say unto them, The gods that have not made the heavens and the earth, even they shall perish from the earth, and from under these heavens. 12 He hath made the earth by his power, he hath established the world by his wisdom, and hath stretched out the heavens by his discretion. 13 When he uttereth his voice, there is a multitude of waters in the heavens, and he causeth the vapours to ascend from the ends of the earth; he maketh lightnings with rain, and bringeth forth the wind out of his treasures. 14 Every man is brutish in his knowledge: every founder is confounded by the graven image: for his molten image is falsehood, and there is no breath in them. 15 They are vanity, and the work of errors: in the time of their visitation they shall perish. 16 The portion of Jacob is not like them: for he is the former of all things; and Israel is the rod of his inheritance: The LORD of hosts is his name.(KJV)

1. He’s risen, he’s risen, Christ Jesus, the Lord; 
He opened Death’s prison, The incarnate, Word. 
Break forth, hosts of heaven, in jubilant song 
While earth, sea, and mountain the paean prolong. 

2. The foe was triumphant when on Calvary 
The Lord of creation was nailed to the tree. 
In Satan’s domain did the hosts shout and jeer, 
For Jesus was slain, whom the evil ones fear. 

3. But short was their triumph, the Savior arose, 
And death, hell, and Satan He vanquished, His foes; 
The conquering Lord lifts his banner on high. 
He lives, yea, he lives, and will nevermore die. 

4. Oh, where is your sting, death? We fear thee no more; 
Christ rose, and now open is fair Eden’s door. 
For all our transgressions His blood does atone; 
Redeemed and forgiven, we now are His own. 

5. Then sing your hosannas and raise your glad voice; 
Proclaim the blest tidings that all may rejoice. 
Laud, honor, and praise to the Lamb that was slain; 
Who siteth in glory, and ever shall reign.
