Martin Luther's spiritual songs

by Martin Luther

Excerpt:

And now a miracle was done;
Six waterpots stood there of stone,
Christ spake the word with power divine,
The water reddened into wine.

All honour unto Christ be paid,
Pure offspring of the holy maid,
With Father and with Holy Ghost,
Till time in endless time be lost.

(£asfn\
i.

(1524.)

Jesus Christ to-day is risen,
And o'er Death triumphant reigns;
He has burst the grave's strong prison,
Leading Sin herself in chains.

Kyrie eleison.

For our sin the sinless Saviour
Bare the heavy wrath of God;
Reconciling us, that favour
Might be shewn us through His blood.

Kyrie eleison.

In His hands He hath for ever
Mercy, Life, and Sin, and Death;
Christ His people can deliver.
All who come to Him in faith.

Kyrie eleison.

(fattr.

ii.

(1524.) Christ lay awhile in Death's strong bands,

For our offences given;
But now at God's right hand He stands,
And brings us life from heaven:
Wherefore let us joyful be,
And sing to God right thankfully
Loud songs of Hallelujah!

Hallelujah!

No man from Death could victory win,

O'er all mankind he reigned;
Alas! that cometh of our sin,

There was not one unstained:
Wherefore Death in triumph came,
And over us a right did claim;
He held us all in thraldom.

Hallelujah!

Christ Jesus, God's own Son, came down,
That He might us deliver,

And sin destroying, took his crown
From Death's pale brows for ever:
Stript of power, no more he reigns;
An empty Shape alone remains;
His sting is lost for ever.

Hallelujah!

It was a strange and dreadful strife,
When Life and Death contended;

The victory remained with Life,
The reign of Death was ended:

Holy Scripture plainly saith,

That Death is swallowed up by Death,

Made henceforth a derision.

Hallelujah!

Here the true Paschal Lamb we see,

Whom God so freely gave us; He died on the accursed tree

So strong His love! to save us:

See! His blood doth mark our door,

Faith points to it, Death passes o'er,

The Murderer cannot harm us.

Hallelujah! So let us keep the festival,

Whereto the Lord invites us;
Christ is Himself the joy of all,

The Sun which warms and lights us;
By His grace He doth impart
Eternal sunshine to the heart;
The night of sin is ended.

Hallelujah!

Then let us feast this Easter-day

On the true Bread of heaven;
The Word of grace hath purged away

The old and wicked leaven:
Christ alone our souls will feed,
He is our meat and drink indeed;
Faith lives upon no other.

Hallelujah!

Htyitattik

(1524.)

Come, Holy Ghost, Lord God, fulfil
With Thy rich grace, heart, mind, and will,
And each believing soul inspire
With Thine own pure and holy fire.
Lord, by the brightness of Thy light,
Thou in the faith dost men unite
Of every land and every tongue;
This to Thy praise, O Lord, be sung.

Hallelujah! Hallelujah!

Thou holy Light and Guide divine,
0 cause the Word of life to shine;
Teach us to know our God aright,
And call Him Father with delight.
Keep us, O Lord, from all strange lore,
That we may seek no masters more,
But with true faith in Christ abide,
And heartily in Him confide.

Hallelujah! Hallelujah!

Sweet source of comfort, holy Love,
Send us Thy succour from above,
That in Thy service we may stay,
And troubles drive us not away.
Lord, with Thy grace our souls refresh,
Confirm our frail and feeble flesh,
That we through life and death to Thee
May press with Christian chivalry.
