You came to sing your song of felicity
And you sang it beautifully in WORD,
Melody and harmony interlocked and
Blending smooth, to the cross you
Went with your song of all songs...
You, who wants to compose in me
The beautiful song of Jesus, help
Me hum your song with my actions
And to play it over and over again with
My life...thank you Lord for singing!

Matthew 20:17-19 -- And Jesus going up to Jerusalem took the twelve disciples
apart in the way, and said unto them,
Behold, we go up to Jerusalem; and the Son of man shall be betrayed
unto the chief priests and unto the scribes, and they shall condemn him to death,
And shall deliver him to the Gentiles to mock, and to scourge, and
to crucify him: and the third day he shall rise again.
1 Corinthians 15:54-57 -- So when this corruptible shall have put on incorruption,
and this mortal shall have put on immortality, then shall be brought to pass the
saying that is written, Death is swallowed up in victory.
O death, where is thy sting? O grave, where is thy victory?
The sting of death is sin; and the strength of sin is the law.
But thanks be to God, which giveth us the victory through our Lord
