Death In His Grave

[Verse 1]

Though the Earth Cried out for blood

Satisfied her hunger was

Billows calmed on raging seas

For the souls on men she craved

Sun and moon from balcony

Turned their head in disbelief

Precious Love would taste the sting

Disfigured and disdained

 

[Chorus]

On Friday a thief

On Sunday a King

Laid down in grief

But woke with keys

To Hell on that day

The first born of the slain

The Man Jesus Christ laid

Death in his grave

 

[Verse 2]

So three days in darkness slept

The Morning Sun of righteousness

But rose to shame the throes of death

And over turn his rule

Now daughters and the sons of men

Would pay not their dues again

The debt of blood they owed was rent

When the day rolled anew

 

[Bridge]

He has cheated Hell and seated

Us above the fall

In desperate places

He paid our wages

One time once and for all
