MP3: Resurrection Day

Resurrection Day
WORDS & MUSIC
Dennis Jernigan
June 7, 2017

This song was born as I mowed the lawn. Since it takes me about 3 hours to mow my entire lawn, I have a lot of time to meditate! It is my practice to use that time to pray and to simply clear my mind. On this particular day, I was sensing the need to write an affirming word or song for my church, All In All Church. As I thought about the day, my thoughts went to some of the things our little church body was facing along with some health issues I am facing. It occurred to me that, in spite of my circumstances, I could still choose my thoughts. My mind immediately went to the realization that each day I wake up and find breath it is like rising again! Simply, I know, but powerful in truth. As followers of Christ, isn’t every day a day of resurrection? Isn’t every day we face life from the King’s point of view a day of victory? As the simple chorus of the song began to play in my mind, it became a song of rejoicing. Regardless of what we face in this life, we are victorious even in the face of death!

1 What shall we say then? Are we to continue in sin so that grace may increase? 2 May it never be! How shall we who died to sin still live in it? 3 Or do you not know that all of us who have been baptized into Christ Jesus have been baptized into His death? 4 Therefore we have been buried with Him through baptism into death, so that as Christ was raised from the dead through the glory of the Father, so we too might walk in newness of life. 5 For if we have become united with Him in the likeness of His death, certainly we shall also be in the likeness of His resurrection, 6 knowing this, that our old self was crucified with Him, in order that our body of sin might be done away with, so that we would no longer be slaves to sin; 7 for he who has died is freed from sin.
Romans 6:1-7 NASB

Verse
I was the lost one
Then, Lord, You found me
Upon the cross You took my sin away

Sin held me captive
Your love unbound me
By heaven's pow'r You rolled the stone away
You rolled the stone away!

Chorus
With resurrection pow'r
You rolled the stone away
With resurrection pow'r
You rose on the third day

With resurrection pow'r
You washed my sin away
With resurrection pow'r
You left me forever changed

Since my resurrection day
When You rolled the stone away
My resurrection day
Every day I will celebrate
Resurrection day!

Verse
By blood You ransomed me
Because You wanted me!

You gave Your life to seal my destiny!
Defeating darkness!
Healing my brokenness!
Your amazing love broke every chain away!
You broke the chains away!

Chorus
With resurrection pow'r
You rolled the stone away
With resurrection pow'r
You rose on the third day

With resurrection pow'r
You washed my sin away
With resurrection pow'r
You left me forever changed

Since my resurrection day
When You rolled the stone away
My resurrection day
Every day I will celebrate
Resurrection day!

Bridge
It is finished!
I am redeemed!
It is finished and I stand here clean!

It is finished!
My debt is paid!
It is finished since You rolled the stone away!

Chorus
With resurrection pow'r
You rolled the stone away
With resurrection pow'r
You rose on the third day

With resurrection pow'r
You washed my sin away
With resurrection pow'r
You left me forever changed

Since my resurrection day
When You rolled the stone away
My resurrection day
Every day I will celebrate
Resurrection day!
