Hymn/Song Information

O DEATH WHERE IS THY STING




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!


Ye saints approach! the anguish view,
Of him who groans beneath your load;
He gives his precious life for you.
For you he sheds his precious blood.


A conflict with the powers of hell,
Your Saviour did for you sustain:
He nobly fought, but ah! he fell!
Break heart of flint! the Lamb is slain.


Here's love and grief beyond degree!
The Lord of glory dies for men!
But lo! what sudden joys we see!
Jesus, the dead, revives again!


The rising God forsakes the tomb;
Up to his Father's court he flies;
Cherubic legions guard him home.
And shout him welcome to the skies!


Break off your tears, ye saints, and tell
How high our great Deliverer reigns;
Sing how he spoiled the hosts of hell,
And led the tyrant death in chains!


Say, "Live for ever, glorious King,
Born to redeem, instruct, and save!"
Then ask — "O death, where is thy sting!
And where thy victory, boasting grave."


---Alternative verses---


Come, saints, and drop a tear or two,
For him who groaned beneath your load;
He shed a thousand drops for you,
A thousand drops of richest blood.


Break off your tears, ye saints, and tell
How high our great Deliverer reigns ;
Sing how he spoiled the hosts of hell,
And led the monster death in chains!


Break off your tears, you saints, and tell
How high our great deliv’rer reigns;
Sing how he spoil’d the hosts of hell,
And led the monster Death in chains.


Say, "Live for ever, glorious King,
Born to redeem, instruct, and save!"
Then ask — "O death, where is thy sting!
And where thy victory, O grave."


Say, "Live for ever, wondrous King,
Born to redeem, and strong to save!"
Then ask the monster, "Where's thy sting?"!
And, "Where's thy victory, boasting grave?"


Say, "Live for ever, wondrous King,  Born to redeem, and strong to save!"  Where now, O death, "Where is thy sting?" And, "Where's thy victory, boasting grave?"
