Lord’s Day 22 in Song
THE RESURECTION OF THE BODY…
1.) Not only will my soul be raised,
To be with Christ my head,
My mortal body, by His power
Will be raised from the dead.
2.) Both, reunited, body and soul;
My flesh as Christ’s own flesh,
To life, for all eternity
Renewed, forever fresh.
3.) Already now feel in my heart,
In Him, with boundless joy,
New life! Eternal blessedness
Refreshed in His employ.
4.) Such as no eye has seen, received,
Nor human ear has heard,
Nor in the heart of man conceived,
Through Christ, on me conferred.
Copied from Book of Praise Anglo Genevan Psalter

- 57. Q. What comfort does
the resurrection of the body
A. Not only shall my soul
after this life
immediately be taken up
to Christ, my Head,1
but also this my flesh,
raised by the power of Christ,
shall be reunited with my soul
and made like Christ’s glorious body.2

- 58. Q. What comfort do you receive
from the article about
the life everlasting?
A. Since I now already
feel in my heart
the beginning of eternal joy,1
I shall after this life
possess perfect blessedness,
such as no eye has seen,
nor ear heard,
nor the heart of man conceived—
a blessedness in which to praise God forever.2
