“Lord, You establish peace for us; All accomplished You have done for us; While others have ruled over us, Your Name alone do we honor. They are now dead, they live no more; Those departed spirits do not rise for You punished them and brought them to ruin. You have enlarged the nation and gained glory for Yourself. Lord, as a woman in the pains of childbirth, so were we in Your presence, but we gave birth to wind. We have not brought salvation to the earth nor given birth to the people of the world. But Your dead will live; Their bodies will rise; You who dwell in the dust, wake up and shout for joy. Your dew is like the dew of the morning; The earth will give birth to her dead.”

The Closing Hymn: “The Strife Is O’er” (Melody: Hymn 463)

(Lyrics Adapted From Hymn 210 By Judith Snell)

1.The strife is o’er, the battle is now done;
Jesus, the Victor, shines in triumph won;
Forever Jesus praise to Thee be sung!
Alleluia! Alleluia!

2. Death’s mightiest powers have strained to do their worst;
But Christ, our Savior, all His foes dispersed;
For this let shouts of praise and joy outburst;
Alleluia! Alleluia!

3. On the third morn at dawn He rose again –
Glorious to all in majesty to reign;
Swell now the song in wondrous joyful strain!
Alleluia! Alleluia!

 4. Lord, by the stripes which cruelly wounded Thee
From death’s dread sting Thy servants were set free
For’er to live and sing Lord unto Thee!
Alleluia! Alleluia!
