After Jesus Christ died on the cross, it wasn’t quite realized then that He would later rise up from the dead. In John 20, a surprised Mary Magdalene saw that the entrance to Jesus’ tomb was open and the stone was removed. A tomb, a grave, a giant stone – these things are supposed to stay shut. But even death couldn’t hold Him down. They found an empty tomb, a risen Jesus!
“He Has Overcome” is the story of our freedom. It doesn’t end with Jesus dying on the cross… He’s overcome the grave, He’s overcome the tomb, He’s overcome death. Have faith, for He has overcome!
“For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith — and this not from yourselves, it is the gift of God…” (Ephesians 2:8)
He Has Overcome
Words & Music by Andy Lee
Come lift your voice and let us sing
Come bring adoration to our King
Come in your freedom, you are free
Tell of His mercy and His love
Find hope and freedom in the Son
Raise a shout, the tomb was not enough
Death couldn’t hold Him down
We glorify King Jesus Christ
Who died for all our sin
He came to save, conquered the grave
Now we’re alive in Him
Shout for joy, Hallelujah!
He has overcome
Our God reigns, He remains
He has overcome, He has overcome
