Wonderful words. Wonderful song. Hallelujah! Jesus is alive! I need Him so much. I rejoice that He gave His life for me. He shed His blood for me. Time and time again, I need this grace, this gift, so freely given. I’m redeemed, yet I fail. Where would I be without the empty tomb and my Redeemer that lives? I am overcome.
Thank-you Jesus! You are alive.
And there is a glorious day coming.
Oh glorious day!
One day when Heaven was filled with His praises
One day when sin was as black as could be
Jesus came forth to be born of a virgin
Dwelt among men, my example is He
Word became flesh and the light shined among us
His glory revealed.
Living, He loved me
Dying, He saved me
Buried, He carried my sins far away
Rising, He justified freely forever
One day He’s coming
Oh glorious day, oh glorious day!
One day they led Him up Calvary’s mountain
One day they nailed Him to die on a tree
Suffering anguish, despised and rejected
Bearing our sins, my Redeemer is He
Hands that healed nations, stretched out on a tree
And took the nails for me.
One day the grave could conceal Him no longer
One day the stone rolled away from the door
Then He arose, over death He had conquered
Now He’s ascended, my Lord evermore
Death could not hold Him, the grave could not keep Him
From rising again.
One day the trumpet will sound for His coming
One day the skies with His glories will shine
Wonderful day, my Beloved One, bringing
My Savior, Jesus, is mine.
Oh, glorious day!
