Two rough and heavy blocks of wood
Held our Savior fast.
Lifted high and stretched wide He was
Until He breathed His last.
Loved ones so sad to see Him go
So heavy the hearts of His friends
But what they didn’t realize was
He is coming back again.
He sacrificed His earthly life for us
Enduring sin’s weight ne’er foreknown.
In obedience to the will of His Father
He bore sin’s horrors without a groan.
Then, into the cold and dark He descended
Where Saints of Old did await.
He freed them from the Netherworld
And released them to Heavenly fate.
But O that third day morning He arose,
He burst forth from the grip of death.
His Heavenly Father had intervened
For He had passed Obedience’s test.
In Victory He arose from the dead
With keys to Death, Hell, and the Grave.
Because He was obedient to God His Father
Multiplied numbers upon numbers will be saved.
Who is this King of Glory?
This strong and mighty Man and God?
He is Jesus the Christ, our Lord and Savior
Whose salvation message we must spread abroad.
He will forever be known as the Lord of Lords
The Prophet, The Priest, and The King.
His glory, majesty, and honor
Will throughout eternity ring!
Happy Resurrection Sunday, 2019. Jesus Lives!
