Death Could Not Hold Him

Death Could Not Hold Him


On the cross Christ bore the sins
Of all humanity
Not all the pain and sin and shame
For all eternity
Not even all the hosts of hell
Nor death claimed victory…

Over Christ, God’s only Son
Who shed His spotless blood
To redeem our sinful souls
And make us each His child…

Born anew in righteousness,
Not ours but Christ’s alone,
A righteousness we could not earn
But His redemption clothed.

Christ purchased righteousness for us
With His spotless blood;
We receive His gift of grace,
By faith we know and trust

That God is ever faithful,
That He can never lie
He was faithful to His Son
To raise Him back to life
After Jesus bore our sins
And suffered hell three days
His Father kept His Holy Word
And rose Him from the grave…

Now He lives to die no more
So all can now be saved
Who come to Christ for salvation
When to the Lord they pray
Asking Christ into their heart
His children now are they
To ever walk with Him by faith
To love Jesus with all their heart
And ever sing His praise.
In Jesus’ holy name,
Amen.
