Death in His Grave

Death In His Grave (Performance Video) from john mark mcmillan on Vimeo.


Though the Earth cried out for blood
Satisfied her hunger was

Billows calmed on raging seas
for the souls of men she craved

Sun and moon from balcony
Turned their head in disbelief
Their precious Love would taste the sting
disfigured and disdained

On Friday a thief

On Sunday a King

Laid down in grief

But woke with the keys

Of Hell on that day

The first born of the slain

The Man Jesus Christ laid
Death in his grave


So 3 days in darkness slept
The Morning Sun of righteousness
But rose to shame the throws of death
And overturn his rule


Now daughters and the sons of men
Would pay not their dues again
The debt of blood they owed was rent

When the day rolled a new


On Friday a thief

On Sunday a King

Laid down in grief

But awoke holding keys

To Hell on that day

The first born of the slain

The Man Jesus Christ

Laid death in his grave


He has cheated Hell and seated us above the fall

In desperate places He paid our wages one time once and for all
