Christ rising again from the dead now dieth not. Death from henceforth hath no pow’r upon him. For in that he died, he died but once to put away sin; but in that he liveth, he liveth unto God. And so likewise, count yourselves dead unto sin, but living unto God in Christ Jesus our Lord. Christ is risen again, the first fruit of them that sleep. For seeing that by man came death, by man also cometh the resurrection of the dead. For as by Adam all men do die so by Christ all men shall be restored to life. Alleluia.
