Lent 25: John 5: 17 - 30

The dead will hear the voice of the Son of God …

He will make the dead arise,
He exalt them to the skies!
He who did His Father’s will,
He is living, reigning still.

He did not choose His own way,
He submitted to obey,
Suffered, hungered for His own –
Sits forever on the throne.

He who did not raise His voice
When Barabbas was their choice,
Shall a shout of triumph give
When He calls the dead to live.

He who laid aside His power,
Bore the hell-dark of that hour,
Suffered past our deepest guess,
Sin and death to dispossess

He is God and He is King
Victor over everything,
Death and hell are in his thrall,

He has triumphed over all.
