Ri-sen, He's ri-sen,
King Je-sus is alive
Oh, oh, hallelujah,
you've been overpowered
Death where is your sting,
conquered by the King
Shining like the sun
Breaking through the fear,
victory is here, victory is here
Oh, oh, hallelujah
Jesus be lifted higher,
we serve a risen savior
that crushed the enemy
The same power, the same power,
the same power lives in me
Risen - In the Bible [Verses & Devotional]
We serve a risen Savior! Jesus Christ, the King of Kings, has conquered death and the grave and is alive forevermore! This is the truth that we celebrate in the song “Risen” by Covenant Worship.
The Bible tells us in 1 Corinthians 15:55-57 that “Where, O death, is your victory? Where, O death, is your sting? The sting of death is sin, and the power of sin is the law. But thanks be to God! He gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ.” Jesus has overcome death and the grave and has given us the victory through His death and resurrection.
The lyrics of the song remind us that Jesus is the resurrected one, shining like the sun and breaking through the fear. We can have hope and courage in the face of fear because of the power of Jesus’ resurrection. Romans 8:11 says, “And if the Spirit of him who raised Jesus from the dead is living in you, he who raised Christ from the dead will also give life to your mortal bodies because of his Spirit who lives in you.” We have the same power that raised Jesus from the dead living in us!
Let us celebrate the victory of Jesus’ resurrection and the power of His Spirit living in us. Let us sing “Oh, oh, hallelujah” and lift Jesus higher!
