[Continuing the idea of one of my old hymns on Sundays:]
Jesus was raised by God’s great might,
raised from the dead to realms of Light;
Head of the church at God’s right hand, –
mighty the power at his command.
Power, help when I’m tempted,
power, when I’m afflicted.
Power to help me fight my sin; –
come and receive, draw near to him.
Christ is above all earthly kings,
far above all the awesome things;
see his great glory, more and more,
let him empower you from his store.
Christ will present his church complete, –
nothing his purpose will defeat;
everything works for this design; –
power for holiness is mine.
Tune: LM+ More about Jesus
… his incomparably great power for us who believe. That power is like the working of his mighty strength, which he exerted in Christ when he raised him from the dead and seated him at his right hand in the heavenly realms … Ephesians 1:19-23
