I Know That My Redeemer Liveth (Aria from the Messiah)
I know that my Redeemer liveth,
and that he shall stand at the latter day upon the earth.
And though worms destroy this body,
yet in my flesh shall I see God.
For now is Christ risen from the dead,
the first fruits of them that sleep.
Texts: Job 19:25-26; 1 Corinthians 15:20
