Death Vanquished; Life Reigns

…Then bursting forth in glorious Day
Up from the grave He rose again *

Death could not hold Jesus Christ. He pushed through the boundaries of the tomb and broke the dominion of death. He defeated Satan and rendered him powerless, condemning sin, nailing it to the cross. He set his people free!

Come join the victory dance…

In Christ Alone

In Christ alone…

In Christ alone, who took on flesh
Fullness of God in helpless babe
This gift of love and righteousness
Scorned by the ones He came to save
‘Til on that cross as Jesus died
The wrath of God was satisfied
For every sin on Him was laid
Here in the death of Christ I live, I live

There in the ground His body lay
Light of the world by darkness slain
Then bursting forth in glorious Day
Up from the grave He rose again
And as He stands in victory
Sin’s curse has lost its grip on me
For I am His and He is mine
Bought with the precious blood of Christ

 

Because he lives; we live also.


No guilt in life, no fear in death
This is the power of Christ in me
From life’s first cry to final breath
Jesus commands my destiny
No power of hell, no scheme of man
Can ever pluck me from His hand
Till He returns or calls me home
Here in the power of Christ I’ll stand
