|He is not here: for he is risen, as he said... |
The first day of the week broke with Heaven’s glorious light.
Looking at the beauty you would never know there had been a fight.
Three days before, GOD’s Son, Jesus, had been killed.
Crucified upon a cross, on Golgotha’s horrid hill.
All the powers of evil thought that they had won.
They knew they had succeeded in destroying GOD’s only Son.
Never again would He show His Father’s love for fallen man.
They were so proud they had finally stopped Salvation’s plan.
Oh, but when JESUS showed up knocking at death’s door,
All hell began to tremble, death had lost its power forever more!
Jesus was the victor, over death, hell and the grave.
He was the final sacrifice for mankind to be saved.
The words He spoke are still the same as they were back then:
“I AM the Resurrection and the Life, believe on me and you shall live again!”

…I am the resurrection, and the life: he that believeth in me,
though he were dead, yet shall he live:
