Messiah Has Passed to Glory Poem


“This cannot just be right
His disciples stole him by night
He cannot eclipse our light
When we thought we’d won the fight”

These leaders did not know
The prophets said it’d be so
He’d suffer and die to show
To sin all men could say, “No!”

And risen from the dead
To God’s right hand exalted
He’s ensuring that we’re made
His people, o’er creation the head

Our endless “Hallelujahs”
Help us proclaim, “Alas,
Death, sin and loss will pass
Because Messiah to glory has!”

[18] Now the birth of Jesus Christ was on d this wise: When as his mother Mary was espoused e to Joseph, before they came together, she was found with child of the Holy f Ghost.

[19] Then Joseph her husband, being a just man, and not willing to make her a public example, was minded to put her away privily.

[20] But while he thought on these things, behold, the angel of the Lord appeared unto him in a dream, saying, Joseph, thou son of David, fear not to take unto thee Mary thy wife: for that which is conceived in her is of the Holy Ghost.

[21] And she shall bring forth a son, and thou shalt call his name JESUS: for he shall save his people from their sins.

[22] Now all this was done, that it might be fulfilled which was spoken of the Lord by the prophet, saying,

[23] Behold, a virgin shall be with child, and shall bring forth a son, and they shall call his name Emmanuel, which being k interpreted is, God with us.

1 Corinthians 15:52-57
[52] In a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trump: aa for the trumpet shall sound, and the dead shall be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed.

[53] For this corruptible must put on incorruption, and this mortal must put on immortality.

[54] 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.

[55] O death, where is thy sting? O grave, where is thy victory?

[56] The sting of death is sin; and the strength of sin is the law.

[57] But thanks be to God, which giveth us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ.
