Hymnody

In Christ Fore’er We Stand

 Though death may come and grief increase,
And tears doth flow and e’en increase
Despair we not – Christ is our peace.
In Christ fore’er we stand!

Though death his gruesome teeth doth bear
We hold our ground and have no fear
For Jesus is beside us there.
In Christ fore’er we stand!

Grim death a show of strength may make –
Our confidence he shall not shake.
Our Lord doth all death’s weapons break.
In Christ fore’er we stand!

The grave its jaws doth open wide;
At this we shan’t be terrified –
Through Jesus’ death this grave has died!
In Christ fore’er we stand!

Of all who live Christ is the first.
Now, through His life, death’s curse is cursed,
Yea, all his fetters now are burst!
In Christ fore’er we stand!

Our loved one lieth fore us there –
Let this sight make our hearts prepare
For when we, with him/her heav’n will share.
In Christ fore’er we stand!

Rejoice at what our Lord doth speak,
My Word doth ev’ry bondage break,
In him who hears, it faith doth make.”
In Christ foe’er we stand!

or

Rejoice! Our Lord doth bless us sore,
And makes our sins to be no more
By Word that He o’er us doth pour.
In Christ fore’er we stand!

Our grief may tarry for the day,
Yet we shall ever boldly say,
Christ Jesus is our Life and Stay!”
In Christ fore’er we stand!
