Death Has Died

Posted on

death

Death has died!

Scream it in the streets!

Let the world know

The darkness is gone

The light has come

Death has died!

The unrestricted restricted Himself

To set us free from the chains

That have restricted us

Oh death!

Where is your sting?

Oh grave!

Where is your victory?

Alas!

The end has come! They cheered

Aha!

It is finished! He said

They thought it was over

They thought they had Him bound

But He could never be put down

By His strong hands death has died!

Oh death that scares the sons of men!

Oh grave that has swallowed up warriors!

What power do you have

To keep the one who is Life, dead?

Victory! He shouts

Bursting out of the belly of hell

With the keys of death in His hands

Death has died!

Shout it in the streets

Let the world know!

He is risen!

With an empty grave left in His wake

Nothing can hold Him bound

Not even the clenched jaws of death!

And as for you,

Rejoice!

For the victory won

Was a gift to give

Death was the bride price

To make you His very own adorned bride

Do not be afraid

Do not be sad

For your groom is alive!

And by His mighty hands

Death has died!

    Thank you Mfon for this interesting reminder that Christ and not bunnies are the reason for the season. Once I started, I couldn’t stop till the end. I really love how you redirected the post to your own blog, it makes a lot of sense.

    nice one, most people have forgotten the true meaning of easter, its like a celebration of goats and chickens. Jesus is the reason, there should be a celebration not sadness, a connection not uncontrollable parties that prove nothing, thankGod he died.
