Come Join the Song
by Steven Searcy
Come join the song, sing praises loud and plain
to Christ the Lamb, who lives though he was slain.
He took the whip, spit, thorns, nails, jeers, disdain,
and utter isolation in his pain,
then dropped into the grave—but not in vain!
By death, he transformed loss into great gain—
what once was Satan’s boon became his bane.
Christ chose to die, to conquer death’s domain.
Our Jesus has destroyed death’s lock and chain,
and rises to his throne where he will reign
for good. No fear and sadness will remain,
and all his children join to sing the loud refrain.
