Arise, My Love

Written by Julie

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 Him, He’s dead”
Then the Father looked down
To His Son and He 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
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

{This, by the group Acapella, is my favorite version, but I like Hallal’s version as well.}
