Victory's Roar against Death

No scene as sacred as history’s rugged Calvary. As majestic as falling rain on a desert soul’s revelry. Christianity begins where religion ends…with resurrection. Resurrection gives life a makeover stance for redirection. History’s pivotal theme is central for the transforming cross. On Easter you’ll find life from His grave, empty without loss. That Calvary’s stone-door is to enable disciples to enter in. Christ took my place, there, to give me a place without sin. No pain, no palm; no thorns, nor throne; no cross, no crown. Grateful for life's theme, He makes me triumph over death unsound. All Heaven’s awed by such a cross; Hell is terrified for Victory’s raid. Let Heaven rejoice, humanity sing, for power over Death has been paid.
