Matthew 16:21 “…he must be killed and O THE THIRD DAY BE RAISED TO LIFE.”
Matthew 17:23 “….They will kill him, and on THE THIRD DAY HE WILL BE RAISED TO LIFE.”
Matthew 20:19 “…flogged and crucified. ON THE THIRD DAY HE WILL BE RAISED TO LIFE.”
In these 3 gospel of Matthew accounts Jesus predicted His own death, burial and resurrection.
Resurrection Day depicts the triumphant victory won by Christ. He wears the victor’s crown.
Today’s older hymn depicts the anticipation of this day. Let’s celebrate!
Low in the grave He lay, Jesus my Savior,
Waiting the coming day, Jesus my Lord!
Up from the grave He arose,
With a mighty triumph o’er His foes,
He arose a Victor from the dark domain,
And He lives forever, with His saints to reign.
He arose! He arose!
Hallelujah! Christ arose!
Vainly they watch His bed, Jesus my Savior;
Vainly they seal the dead, Jesus my Lord!
Death cannot keep its Prey, Jesus my Savior;
He tore the bars away, Jesus my Lord!
