Christ became sin and died one day
That all mankind might be set free
He went down to hell and rose again
By this single act came sweet victory

He caused what was old to slip away
Allowing only the new life to come
Placing In our hearts His spirits touch
So we may taste of His victory won

So our hearts and minds will no longer value
The worldly or perishable material things
That we may have faith provided by His grace
To believe in only those things yet unseen

We may now be reconciled to God our Father
By the selfless act of our beloved Lord and King
And on His behalf the Father gladly embraces
The faithful believers Christ alone will bring

Through Christ by God is this appeal made
For all who now hear His calling to be saved
Taking hold of this power of His new life
Which resurrected Him whole from the grave
