    Verse 1
    Jesus the friend of sinners dies
    The children of Salem doth weep
    Thick darkness sets and veils the skies
    And suddenly, the earth did quake

    Verse 2
    Behold the mercy and the love
    Of the king of glory for man
    Behold what joy doth come our way
    Jesus who died doth rise again

    Verse 3
    Then, fear ye not, O saints of God
    Tell how the Lord our King doth reign,
    Sing of His victory o'er the foe
    Tell how He met and conquered death

    Verse 4
    Proclaim: ''Thou art our king for aye''
    Thou who art born to save us all
    Ask death and say ''where is thy sting?''
    And grave, ''where is thy victory?''
