Christ rising again 
Language: English 
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.
