37*. The Lord of Life Is Risen

by G.W. Frazer
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
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
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.
John 14:3; 1 Peter 1:13; 1 Corinthians 6:20; Acts 20:28; 1 Thessalonians 4:13-17; 1 Corinthians 15:49
