This Morning Everything Has Changed


This Morning Everything Has Changed
Our life is swallowed up by death.
Light is overwhelmed by darkness.
Hope is faded with his last breath.
Only fear remains for us to hearken.

We thought he would set us free.
For ever since the dreaded curse,
There's promised in him victory.
Yet darkness - nothing's been reversed.

Where is the hope that was foretold,
Promised to us in days of old?
Where is the joy that might have been?
It's been consumed by a world of sin.

Death has won, we're all estranged,
God forsaken, it's gloom and doom.
But this morning...everything has changed -
The stone's rolled back. There's an empty tomb.
