 As David, so our David, too, the jeering huge Goliath slew.

 The chains of death He broke in two When He arose to life anew.

 Alleluia. To Him all praise be given.

 He leads to freedom all oppressed And pardons all whom sin possessed.

Scripture

1 Corinthians 15:54-58 For this corruptible must put on incorruption, and this mortal must put on immortality. So when this corruptible has put on incorruption, and this mortal has put on immortality, then shall be brought to pass the saying that is written: “Death is swallowed up in victory.” “O Death, where is your sting? O Hades, where is your victory?” The sting of death is sin, and the strength of sin is the law. But thanks be to God, who gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ. Therefore, my beloved brethren, be steadfast, immovable, always abounding in the work of the Lord, knowing that your labor is not in vain in the Lord.
