Trampling over Death by Death!

July 3, 2011

We sang “Christ Is Risen”  as part of our Sunday worship today.

This line is one that stood out to me: “Trampling over death by death”

Here’s the entirety of the song:

Let no one caught in sin remain
Inside the lie of inward shame
We fix our eyes upon the cross
And run to Him who showed great love

And bled for us
Freely You’ve bled for us

Christ is risen from the dead
Trampling over death by death
Come awake, come awake
Come and rise up from the grave

Christ is risen from the dead
We are one with Him again
Come awake, come awake
Come and rise up from the grave

Beneath the weight of all our sin
You bowed to none but Heaven’s will
No scheme of Hell, no scoffer’s crown
No burden great can hold You down

In strength You reign
Forever let Your church proclaim

Christ is risen from the dead
Trampling over death by death
Come awake, come awake
Come and rise up from the grave

Christ is risen from the dead
We are one with Him again
Come awake, come awake
Come and rise up from the grave

O death, where is your sting?
O hell, where is your victory?
O church, come stand in the light
The glory of God has defeated the night

Sing it, o death, where is your sting?
O hell, where is your victory?
O church, come stand in the light
Our God is not dead, He’s alive, He’s alive

Christ is risen from the dead
Trampling over death by death
Come awake, come awake
Come and rise up from the grave

Christ is risen from the dead
We are one with Him again
Come awake, come awake
Come and rise up from the grave

Christ is risen from the dead
Trampling over death by death
Come awake, come awake
Come and rise up from the grave

Christ is risen from the dead
We are one with Him again
Come awake, come awake
Come and rise up from the grave
Rise up from the grave

~Matt Maher, Christ Is Risen

    […] I had not heard this song until this week, and it was powerful in drawing my heart and mind to think about the incarnation of Jesus–Jesus, both God and man, His love for His fallen creation. Today, of course, we celebrate His resurrection. And yet, I know that I also need to think deeply on what happened in Gethsemane, what happened on the cross. And today, we rejoice and celebrate what happened so that we can proclaim, “Christ is Risen from the Dead!” […]
