698 (C.M.) Isaac Watts

Oh, for an overcoming faith

To cheer my dying hours,

To triumph o'er the monster Death,

And all his frightful pow'rs!

Joyful with all the strength I have

My quiv'ring lips shall sing:

Where is thy boasted vict'ry, Grave?

And where the monster's sting?

If sin be cancelled, I'm secure,

Death hath no sting beside;

The law gave sin its damning power;

But Christ, the ransom, died.

Now to the God of victory

Immortal thanks be paid,

Who makes us conqu'rors when we die,

Through Christ our living head.
