Listen, sisters! Listen, Brothers!

Full Text

Listen, sisters! Listen, brothers!
To the news that we proclaim;
Spread the word and tell your neighbors:
We have life in Jesus’ name.
All because God loves us dearly,
Jesus died for all our sin.
On the third day, God showed clearly:
Love has conquered, death can’t win.

What could be our proclamation
If our Lord had not been raised,
For without his resurrection,
What could give hope to our days?
But in fact, our Christ is living—
First to live, of those who’ve died;
For as all are lost through Adam,
So in Christ, we’re made alive.

What is sown will surely perish;
What is raised will still endure.
What is sown is sown in weakness;
What is raised will die no more.
Flesh and blood cannot inherit
That great kingdom God will bring.
God will change us—never fear it!
Death, defeated, has no sting.
