Part 3:

I know that my Redeemer liveth

Since by man came death

Behold, I tell you a mystery

The Trumpet shall sound

Then shall be brought to pass

O death, where is thy sting?

But thanks be to God

If God be for us

Worthy is the lamb that was slain

Blessing and honour, glory and power, be unto Him & Amen Chorus
