1. Jesus Christ, who came to save, And overcame the grave, Is now arisen, And sin hath bound in prison. Kyri' eleison.

2. Who withouten sin was found, Bore our transgression's wound. He is our Savior, And brings us to God's favor. Kyri' eleison.

3. Life and mercy, sin and death, All in His hands He hath; Them He'll deliver, Who trust in Him forever. Kyri' eleison.
