37*. The Lord of Life Is Risen

7,6.
by G.W. Frazer
1
The Lord of life is risen,
 
Has left the darksome grave,
 
And, death by Him abolished,
 
He's mighty now to save;
 
And we with Him are risen,
 
The fruit of all His toil,
 
The firstfruits of His harvest,
 
His suffering's richest spoil.
Acts 3:15; 1 Corinthians 15:20; 2 Timothy 1:10; Hebrews 7:25; Isaiah 63:1; Colossians 2:12; Isaiah 53:11; James 1:18
2
The Lord of life is seated
 
At God's right hand on high—
 
God's just and righteous answer
 
To grace which stooped to die;
 
In Him we too are seated,
 
Oh blessèd, wondrous grace!
 
Accepted and belovèd,
 
In Him, in sonship's place.
Hebrews 1:3; Hebrews 8:1; Hebrews 10:2; Hebrews 12:2; Philippians 2:7-9; Ephesians 2:6; Ephesians 1:6; 2 Thessalonians 2:13; Galatians 4:5-7; 1 John 3:2
3
The Lord of life is coming
 
To perfect all His grace;
 
To take His blood-bought people
 
To fill their heavenly place;
 
Oh! with what joy ascending
 
We'll meet Him in the air,
 
To dwell with Him in glory,
 
And His blest image bear.

“And hath raised us up together, and made us sit together in heavenly places in Christ Jesus.” (Ephesians 2:6)
“To the praise of the glory of his grace, wherein he hath made us accepted in the beloved.” (Ephesians 1:6)
“But we are bound to give thanks alway to God for you, brethren beloved of the Lord, because God hath from the beginning chosen you to salvation through sanctification of the Spirit and belief of the truth.” (2 Thessalonians 2:13)
“To redeem them that were under the law, that we might receive the adoption of sons. And because ye are sons, God hath sent forth the Spirit of his Son into your hearts, crying, Abba, Father. Wherefore thou art no more a servant, but a son; and if a son, then an heir of God through Christ.” (Galatians 4:5-7)
“Beloved, now are we the sons of God, and it doth not yet appear what we shall be: but we know that, when he shall appear, we shall be like him; for we shall see him as he is.” (1 John 3:2)
“And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again, and receive you unto myself; that where I am, there ye may be also.” (John 14:3)
“Wherefore gird up the loins of your mind, be sober, and hope to the end for the grace that is to be brought unto you at the revelation of Jesus Christ.” (1 Peter 1:13)
“For ye are bought with a price: therefore glorify God in your body, and in your spirit, which are God's.” (1 Corinthians 6:20)
“Take heed therefore unto yourselves, and to all the flock, over the which the Holy Ghost hath made you overseers, to feed the church of God, which he hath purchased with his own blood.” (Acts 20:28)
“But I would not have you to be ignorant, brethren, concerning them which are asleep, that ye sorrow not, even as others which have no hope. For if we believe that Jesus died and rose again, even so them also which sleep in Jesus will God bring with him. For this we say unto you by the word of the Lord, that we which are alive and remain unto the coming of the Lord shall not prevent them which are asleep. For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God: and the dead in Christ shall rise first. Then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air: and so shall we ever be with the Lord.” (1 Thessalonians 4:13-17)
“And as we have borne the image of the earthy, we shall also bear the image of the heavenly.” (1 Corinthians 15:49)
