Jesus cried “It is finished” the Son of GOD was gone.
Satan shouted out in glee; he thought that he had won!
They took Jesus' broken body and placed it in a tomb,
His family, his friends, his disciples, all were filled with gloom.
As hell was rejoicing, loudly celebrating Jesus death,
There was a sound that was heard that made them hold their breath.
Down the corridor of hell walked a man bright as day,
He was coming to claim the keys of death and take it's power away!
Death, hell and the grave had to bow to His decree,
"Every Saint held captive here is coming home with me!"
When Sunday morning began to dawn with the brightness of the day,
The angels descended and rolled the stone away!
The One who freely gave His life so that we might be saved,
Was the One that triumphed over death, hell and the grave.
The One who made the promise, "In three days I will Arise"
Is now the One Proclaimed THE RESURRECTION AND THE LIFE!
