Death is ended!

One of my favorite Easter songs is “Death is Ended” by James Ward.  Today, as I was thinking about our Easter service at New City IPC, I tracked down the lyrics and watched the choir from our old church, New City – Chattanooga, sing it.

Verse 1
Behold I tell you a mystery
we will all be changed, changed, changed
In a flash! (even in the twinkling of an eye)
at the last (the trumpet will sound)
and the dead (will be raised imperishable)
and we’ll be changed around
The saying that is written will be true!

Chorus
Death is ended
Death is ended
Death is swallowed up in victory!

Verse 2
Our days are like the flowers of the field
The wind blows over and we’re gone Gone, gone
Everlast! (but from everlasting)
Everlast! (to everlasting)
Still his love (still his love is for those who fear him)
His promises live on!
The saying that that is written will be true!

Bridge
Thanks be unto Jesus
Thanks be unto God
He has won the battle
Through the power of the cross!

Where oh death (Where is your victory?)
Where oh death (Where is your sting?)
Where oh death (You are the enemy)
but Jesus is my King!
The saying that is written will be true!

Death is ended, yes!
Death is ended, yes!
Death is swallowed up in victory!

Death has ended.  We may not see the full results yet, but have hope – Jesus has won the victory!
