Risen Redeemer

"O give thanks unto the LORD… Who remembered us in our low estate… and hath redeemed us from our enemies" (Psalm 136:1,23,24).  "He saw that there was no man… there was no intercessor: therefore His arm brought salvation unto Him; and His righteousness, it sustained Him" (Isaiah 59:16).  "Now is Christ risen from the dead… Death is swallowed up in victory… O death, where is thy sting? O grave, where is thy victory?... Thanks be to God, which giveth us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ" (1 Corinthians 15:20,54-57). 

Give thanks to the Lord who became
Our risen Redeemer and Savior. 
He bore our transgressions and shame,
And graciously clothed us with favor. 

He saw there was no intercessor,
No hero to keep us from harm,
No one to redeem the transgressor,  
Then saved us, therefore, with His arm! 

Christ died on the cross in our stead
To purchase our peace that He gave,  
But now He is raised from the dead,
So where is your vict'ry, O grave? 

O Risen Redeemer, we praise
Your name we delight to  extol! 
Your vict'ry forever displays
Your infinite love for each soul!
