Arise, My Love

Newsong

 

Not a word was heard at the tomb that day,
Just shuffling of soldiers' feet as they guarded the grave.
One day, two days, three days had passed.
Could it be that Jesus breathed His last?

Could it be that His Father had forsaken Him-
Turned His back on His Son, despising our sin?
All Hell seemed to whisper, "Just forget it, He's dead."
Then the Father looked down to His Son and said,

 

"Arise, My Love!
Arise, My Love!
The grave no longer has a hold on You.
No more death's sting,
No more suffering.
Arise, arise, My Love!"

 

The earth trembled, and the tomb began to shake,
And like lightning from Heaven, the stone was rolled away.
And as dead men--the guards--they all stood there in fright
As the power of love displayed its might.

Then suddenly a melody filled the air
Riding wings of wind-it was everywhere-
The words all creation had been longing to hear,
The sweet sound of victory, so loud and clear:

 

"Arise, My Love!
Arise, My Love!
The grave no longer has a hold on You.
No more death's sting,
No more suffering.
Arise, arise!"

 

Sin, where are your shackles?
Death, where is your sting?
Hell has been defeated!
The grave could not hold the King!

 

"Arise, My Love!
Arise, My Love!
The grave no longer has a hold on You.
No more death's sting,
No more suffering.
Arise, arise, arise!"
