07 Battle For The Eternal Destiny Of Humankind - Poem by Royston Allen

VII - Satan and Death are defeated

Three days and nights without respite He fought
with unearthly foes He wrestled and wrought.
Who can tell what awful things they did to Him
as this gruesome army fought in that place so grim.

Satan roared and clawed at His body in despair
but found no sin and could not hold Him there.
For no wrong was to be found in this perfect Man
nothing that could hold Him in death’s domain.

No enemies were left to stand or fight and claw.
Satan’s army now defeated and had to withdraw.
For the great Captain of Salvation had overcome
and Victor o’er death and the grave had become.

Death had been vanquished and sins powers ceased.
Now Satan had retreated and his captives released.
Christ’s victory over sin destroyed all of his powers
winning the fight with death that final foe of ours.
