All Hail the King Who Died to Redeem Us

A poem on the suffering, death and resurrection of Jesus Christ

His death brought salvation to mankind.
A Saviour like Him no one can ever find.
Without Him we would be forever lost.
With Him we overcame the devil’s worst.

They had Him despised and rejected.
But He refused to be utterly dejected.
They numbered Him amongst criminals.
And sent him to death terminals.

He took on the journey with sheer courage
The soldiers paid him a mocking homage.
He carried the cross and paid the price.
Giving His life for the ultimate sacrifice.

They put Him in a very cold grave
With armed soldiers strong and brave
To stay there and take watch over…
The devil thought it was all over.

But on the very third day
An angel rolled the stone away
And in that same glorious hour
He arose from death with power

He overcame the power of hell
Now rings the victory bell.
All hail King Jesus
Who died to redeem us.

Death Could Not Hold Him Down

Acts 2:24
Jesus conquered death

But God raised him from the dead, freeing him from the agony of death, because it was impossible for death to keep its hold on him.

Acts 2:24
