The Death of Death

One of my favorite worship writer/pastors is Charlie Hall. When we were serving at First Baptist Mustang Oklahoma, he was starting out. He often came to our student ministry services on Wednesday evenings to lead worship in the 90’s. He stands out as an authentic leader in worship music down though the years- his love for Jesus is obvious!  He wrote this amazing song. It is so powerful as we enter into Easter Sunday. Do yourself a favor and go to You Tube to listen.    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IyakgSPTVxI

“We can’t come to the Father without the Son
We can’t turn His wrath without shed blood
We brought nothing to the table that satisfied
We were naked and poor, deaf and blind

Man has sinned but God has saved
You rose and overcame the grave

At the death of death, where love and justice kiss
We were born to sin and only You forgive
In Your final breath grace and mercy win
At the death of death You died and rose again

We weren’t just drowning we were dead to the bone
You gave us hearts of flesh and took away the stone
The Word made flesh and love defined
You didn’t spare Yourself the Immortal One died

Man has sinned but God has saved
You rose and overcame the grave

At the death of death where love and justice kiss
We were born to sin and only You forgive
In Your final breath grace and mercy win
At the death of death You died and rose again.”

*Isaiah 53… “but He was pierced for our transgressions;  He was crushed for our iniquities…”

Just Jesus,
