He is Risen

The darkest day in history
When Jesus took my sin from me
Hanging naked on a cross
Dying so I would not be lost

Did thunder roll? Did lightening strike?
Did the earth quake at the sight
Of Love nailed to a tree?
You may not think…but I believe

Might winds howled
The sun hid its face
For what we did
Was such a disgrace

The earth shook with all its might
Saying look what you’ve done! This was not right
To crucify the Savior of the world!
But this was ordained by God, as His plan unfurled

For Jesus to take the punishment meant for us
Three days later God would entrust
Him to rise from the grave…death could not keep
Love imprisoned in a tomb…no more should we weep

For Jesus sits at the right hand
Of God alone
Our King, Our Savior
He is risen to the throne!
