Why Should We Fear The Powers Of Hell

Why should we fear the powers of Hell,
Why should we be afraid?
Jesus conquer’d when he fell.
And rose our Lord and head.

His tortures and his dying pain,
His sorrows and his grief,
Have bursted the infernal chain,
And purchas’d our relief.

Death is in vict’ry swallow’d up,
Our freedom is obtain’d;
And Christ who is our life and hope,
Hath full redemption gain’d.

Now he has left his silent tomb,
And prov’d his mighty power;
We shall enjoy the life to come!
With him for ever more.

Come let us thank him for his love,
With all we can afford;
With saints on earth and hosts above,
Praise him our Mighty Lord.
