O for an overcoming faith To cheer my dying hours;
1 Cor. 15:55ff
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 quiv'ring lips should sing- Where is thy boasted vict'ry, Grave? And where the monster's sting?
If sin be pardoned, 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, Through Christ our living head.
~ Isaac Watts
