Steadfast in Song: An Easter / Quasimodogeniti Hymn

thomasTune: FAR, VERDEN, FAR VEL (The Sun Has Gone Down, Evangelical Lutheran Hymnary 574)

My Savior still lives,
And I too will live in the peace that He gives;
Within me no sin has the strength to remove
The truth of His pardon, the pow’r of His love;
My Lord is arisen, now death must retreat
To utter defeat –
Christ’s work is complete.

Come near, sinners all,
Christ stands in our midst to lift up all who fall,
To bind what is broken, to heal what is ill,
To pardon transgression through God’s gracious will;
Sin, death and the devil, the power they wield
To Jesus must yield.
Our peace has been sealed.

I ask for no more.
My sins are forgiven, God opens the door
To Heaven, where sinners from each tribe and race
Are fully forgiven through faith in His grace;
The Church of all tongues to the Ancient of Days
Forever shall raise
Thanksgiving and praise.
