Romans 6:9-11; 1 Corinthians 15:20-22

9 Knowing that Christ being raised from the dead dieth no more; death hath no more dominion over him.

10 For in that he died, he died unto sin once: but in that he liveth, he liveth unto God.

11 Likewise reckon ye also yourselves to be dead indeed unto sin, but alive unto God through Jesus Christ our Lord.

20 But now is Christ risen from the dead, and become the firstfruits of them that slept.

21 For since by man came death, by man came also the resurrection of the dead.

22 For as in Adam all die, even so in Christ shall all be made alive.

Christ rising again (c. 1550), composed by John Sheppard/Shepherd (1515-1558)

From the first motet, “Warum ist das Licht gegeben den Mühseligen,” which includes Job 3:20-23; Lamentations 3:41; James 5:11 [German]

20 Wherefore is light given to him that is in misery, and life unto the bitter in soul;

21 Which long for death, but it cometh not; and dig for it more than for hid treasures;

22 Which rejoice exceedingly, and are glad, when they can find the grave?

23 Why is light given to a man whose way is hid, and whom God hath hedged in?

41 Let us lift up our heart with our hands unto God in the heavens.

11 Behold, we count them happy which endure. Ye have heard of the patience of Job, and have seen the end of the Lord; that the Lord is very pitiful, and of tender mercy.

Zwei Motetten, Op. 74 (1877 for the first motet, which uses Biblical texts), by Johannes Brahms (1833-1897)
