Hymn/Song Information

He dies the Friend of sinners dies Lo




He dies! the Friend of sinners dies!
Lo! Salem’s daughters weep around;
A solemn darkness veils the skies,
A sudden trembling shakes the ground.


Draw near, and trace in sad review,
His grief, who groaned beneath your load;
He gave his precious life for you,
The ransom of your soul, to God.


But lo! the Lord forsakes the tomb;
In vain his foes forbid his rise;
Angelic legions guard him home,
And shout him welcome to the skies.


Cease, cease your tears, ye saints, and tell
How high our great Deliverer reigns;
Sing how he spoiled the hosts of hell,
And led his captive, Death, in chains.


Sing, “Live for ever, wond’rous King,
Born to redeem, and strong to save;
Thine arm hath torn from death its sting,
And snatched the victory from the grave.”
