Jesus my Savior!
He tore the bars away,
Jesus my Lord!
Up from the grave He arose,
With a mighty triumph o’er His foes;
He arose a Victor from the dark domain,
And He lives forever with His saints to reign,
He arose! He arose!
Hallelujah! Christ arose!
Robert Lowry, Christ Arose.
All the human victories that have ever been won, all put together, would never come minutely close to the victory that Jesus has won in defeating Satan through death and resurrection! As the church was born at Pentecost, Peter proclaimed to those who asked, “What does this mean?”, “God raised him (Jesus) up, loosing the pangs of death, because it was not possible for him to be held by it.” (Acts 2:24). One of Paul’s passions was “that I may know him and the power of his resurrection, and may share his sufferings, becoming like him in his death,” (Philippians 3:10). To live in this power is to know the life of Christ living in us every day (Galatians 2:20).
“Worthy is the Lamb who was slain, to receive power and wealth and wisdom and might and honor and glory and blessing!” (Revelation 5:12).
