The sun-kissed stone stands rolled away

As the night leads on to a glorious day

The empty tomb stares with it’s mouth wide open

With awe and reverence to Christ the risen


Death has been conquered

The curse over mankind forever broken and shattered

Sin’s sting flaunts no more any strength

For the Creator has smashed it from arm’s length


He gave up His Spirit

When He hung on the Cross

And took it back again

Demonstrating death’s defeat and loss


Gone are the hours of grieving and mourning

The resurrected Saviour calls for merry rejoicing

The verity of Christ’s resurrection

Pronounces the assured hope of an eternal union


Over every sickness the power of His resurrection reigns

He heals all heartaches and gut-wrenching pains

Peace untold He lovingly bestows

To the heart crushed with manifold sorrows


He hearkens every cry and call

Whether by day or by nightfall

The warmth of His Presence is oh so comforting

Nothing whatsoever can be so enthralling


If Jesus were not alive

Sin’s judgement wouldn’t let us survive

‘Coz vicious talons pull us unawares

To the roaring den of flames and flares


Rejoice ye all today

The Saviour lives to all your fears allay

Lo! The grave is empty

Declaring to the world a victory for which Jesus has paid the exorbitant bounty


“Jesus said to her, “I am the resurrection and the life. He who believes in Me, though he may die, he shall live. And whoever lives and believes in Me shall never die. Do you believe this?”” (John 11:25)
