Faith Lives Upon No Other

Source unknown

Christ Jesus lay in death's strong bands,For our offenses given;But now at God's right hand He standsAnd brings us life from heaven;Therefore let us joyful beAnd sing to God right thankfullyLoud songs of hallelujah.

It was a strange and dreadful strifeWhen Life and Death contended;The victory remained with Life,The reign of Death was ended;Holy Scripture plainly saithThat Death is swallowed up by Death,His sting is lost forever.

Then let us feast this Easter DayOn Christ, the Bread of Heaven;The Word of Grace hath purged awayThe old and evil leaven.Christ alone our souls will feed.He is our meat and drink indeed;Faith lives upon no other.

- Martin Luther
