     1 Moreover, brethren, I declare unto you the gospel which I preached unto you, which also ye have received, and wherein ye stand; 2 By which also ye are saved, if ye keep in memory what I preached unto you, unless ye have believed in vain. 3 For I delivered unto you first of all that which I also received, how that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures; 4 And that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the scriptures: 5 And that he was seen of Cephas, then of the twelve: 6 After that, he was seen of above five hundred brethren at once; of whom the greater part remain unto this present, but some are fallen asleep. 7 After that, he was seen of James; then of all the apostles. 8 And last of all he was seen of me also, as of one born out of due time. 9 For I am the least of the apostles, that am not meet to be called an apostle, because I persecuted the church of God. 10 But by the grace of God I am what I am: and his grace which was bestowed upon me was not in vain; but I laboured more abundantly than they all: yet not I, but the grace of God which was with me.(KJV)

Christ Jesus Lay in Death’s Strong Bands

1. Christ Jesus lay in death’s strong bands, 
For our offenses given; 
But now at God’s right hand He stands 
And brings us life from heaven; 
Therefore let us joyful be 
And sing to God right thankfully 
Loud songs of hallelujah! 

2. It was a strange and dreadful strife 
When Life and Death contended; 
The victory remained with Life, 
The reign of Death was ended; 
Holy Scripture plainly saith 
That Death is swallowed up by Death, 
His sting is lost forever. 

3. Here the true Paschal Lamb we see, 
Whom God so freely gave us; 
He died on the accursed tree- 
So strong His love!-to save us. 
See, His blood doth mark our door; 
Faith points to it, Death passes o’er, 
And Satan cannot harm us. 

4. So let us keep the festival 
Whereto the Lord invites us; 
Christ is himself the Joy of all, 
The Sun that warms and lights us. 
By His grace He doth impart 
Eternal sunshine to the heart; 
The night of sin is ended. 

5. Then let us feast this Easter Day 
On Christ, the Bread of heaven; 
The Word of Grace hath purged away 
The old and evil leaven. 
Christ alone our souls will feed, 
He is our meat and drink indeed; 
Faith lives upon no other.
