Hymn 1:17 (o For An Overcoming Faith)

Victory over death, 1 Cor. 15, 55 &c.


O for an overcoming faith
To cheer my dying hours,
To triumph o'er the monster Death,
And all his frightful powers.

Joyful with all the strength I have
My quivering lips should sing,
"Where is thy boasted victory, Grave?
And where the monster's sting?"

If sin be pardon'd I'm secure,
Death hath no sting beside;
The law gives sin its damning power,
But Christ, my ransom, died.

Now to the God of victory
Immortal thanks be paid,
Who makes us conquerors while we die,
Thro' Christ our living head.

Blessed are the dead that die in the Lord, Rev. 14. 13.Hear what the voice from heaven proclaims,For all the pious dead,Sweet is the savour of their names,And soft their sleeping bed.They die in Jesus, and are bless'd;How kind their slumbers are!From sufferings and from sins releas'd,And freed from every snare.Far from this world of toil and strife,They're present with the Lord;The labours of their mortal lifeEnd in a large reward.(The end)Isaac Watts's Poem: Hymn 1:18 (Hear What The Voice From Heaven Proclaims)
