English.png English text

This is the day which the Lord has made.
We will rejoice and be glad in it.
Christ is risen from the dead,
Death hath no more dominion over Him,
death is swallowed up in victory,
death hath no more dominion over Him.

O death, where is thy sting!
O grave, where is thy victory!
the sting of death is sin,
and the strength of sin is the law.
But thanks be unto God,
which giveth us the victory,
through our Lord Jesus Christ.
Hallelujah! Hallelujah! Hallelujah!

For the Lord God Omnipotent reigneth,
King of Kings! and Lord of Lords,
and He shall reign for ever and ever!
and He shall reign for evermore.
