08 Battle for the eternal destiny of Humankind


VIII - Humankind is saved

Then out from the tomb in triumph He arose
with victory and supremacy over all His foes.
That moment the destiny of this world changed
as the life of Jesus for ours was exchanged

'Why do you look for Jesus amongst the dead'
these were the words the angels to Mary said.
Later in the garden she heard Him call her name
and turning around 'Rabboni' was her refrain.

The voice she thought she'd never hear again
came speaking from the grave so clear and plain.
And there before her in resurrection victory
stood her Lord, untouchable but alive was He.

The gates of death He had burst open wide
setting free all of the prisoners locked inside.
Now grave you no longer have any hold on me.
Your sting is removed for Jesus holds the key.
