Original text and translations
Rom.4:25 [Christ] was delivered for our offences, and was raised again for our justification.
Rom.6:8 If we be dead with Christ, we believe that we shall also live with him:
Rom.6:9 Knowing that Christ being raised from the dead dieth no more; death hath no more dominion over him.
Rom.6:10 For in that he died, he died unto sin once: but in that he liveth, he liveth unto God.
O sons and daughters, let us sing!
The King of Heave, the glorious King,
O'er death hath risen triumphing. Alleluia!
I Cor.15:57 Thanks be to God, Who giveth us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ.
