I know only a verse. Whether it's correct I don't know. Here goes: Can't you hear the hammer ringing, can you feel old death stinging. When Christ arose the sting of death was gone. He ascended up to glory, to tell redemption's story....

One day Jesus came from heaven
That our sins might be forgiven
An example of the Heavenly Father's love.
He ascended up to glory,
Left me here to tell the story.
By his Father's side he pleads for you and me.

Can't you hear the hammer ringing?
Can't you feel old death stinging?
But when Christ was born the sting of death was gone.
He ascended up to glory,
Left me here to tell the story.
By his Father's side he pleads for you and me.

Line three in the second stanza should read: But when Christ arose the sting of death was gone

How well I remember Sister Hattie Lassiter singing this song many years ago at Calvary Baptist Church in Haverstraw, New York. Miss Hattie, as we all called her, was a truly great gospel singer. She is still alive, now 90 years old and suffering from dementia.

There are more verses to this song. A few lines I barely remember are:

His enemies how they did hate him,
One by one they sought to slay him,
But Jesus rose above them all just like a dove.

When he died, the sun stopped shining.
His loved ones around him crying,
Till at last he cried, "It's finished,"
The job was done.

Does anyone know the verses?

This is how I remember the song being sung"¦

Verse
One day Jesus came from heaven,
that our sins might be forgiven.
An example of our Heavenly Father's love.
How his enemies did hate him,
One by one they sought to slay him,
humbly he stood a servant, just like a dove.

Chorus
Can't you hear the hammers ringing?
Can't you feel old death a stinging?
But when Christ arose that sting of death was gone!
He ascended up to glory and left me here to tell the story.
By His fathers side, He pleads for you and me.

This is how I remember the song being sung"¦

Verse
1. One day Jesus came from heaven,
that our sins might be forgiven.
An example of our Heavenly Father's love.
How his enemies did hate him,
One by one they sought to slay him,
But humbly he stood before them like a dove.

Chorus
Can't you hear the hammers ringing?
Can't you feel old death a stinging?
But when Christ arose that sting of death was gone!
He ascended up to glory and left me here to tell the story.
By His fathers side, He pleads for you and me.

2. When he died the sun stopped shining
loved ones all around him crying;
when they nailed my blessed Savior to the tree.
Can't you hear the Savior groaning,
with his mother 'round him moaning,
and at last he cried 'It's finished'
then he died.
