Johann Franck, the six verses of the hymn, 1650 (Fischer-Tümpel, IV, #103); Rom. 8:1 and 4, 2, 9, 10, 11.

Text:
[Verse 3] (S1, S2, A, T, B)
"'Spite the ancient serpent,
'Spite the jaws of dying,
'Spite the fear they bring!
Tremble, world, with leaping;
I'll stand here with singing
In most sure repose.
God's great might holds me in awe;
Earth and chasm shall grow silent,
Though they yet so rumble."
