Death in His Grave!

I’ve been enjoying this song immensely over the past week, having used it as part of some student training I was doing. I’ve pasted the lyrics below – they’re well worth a read.

What is it about music that makes things sink in, in ways that just hearing or reading something doesn’t? I love how with his music John Mark McMillan reflects the victory and joy of the fact that ‘the man Jesus Christ laid death in his grave’ … let me know what you think!

Though the earth cried out for blood
Satisfied her hunger was
Her billows calmed on raging seas
For the souls of men she craved
Sun and moon from balcony
Turned their head in disbelief
Their precious love would taste the sting
Disfigured and disdained

On Friday a thief
On Sunday a king
Laid down in grief
But awoke with the keys
To hell on that day
Firstborn of the slain
The man Jesus Christ
Laid death in his grave

So three days in darkness slept
The morning sun of righteousness
But rose to shame the throws of death
And over turn his rule
Now daughters and the sons of men
Would pay not their dues again
The debt of blood they owed was rent
When the day rolled anew

On Friday a thief
On Sunday a king
Laid down in grief
But awoke with the keys
To hell on that day
Firstborn of the slain
The man Jesus Christ
Laid death in his grave

He has cheated
Hell and seated
Us above the fall
In desperate places
He paid our wages
One time once and for all
