Song of the Month

(Every month we will be featuring a new or a lesser sung hymn. Worship leaders can then make use of this hymn during worship. The idea is to introduce a new song to the church with a particular theme. Or to revive a lesser sung hymn)

This month’s song (new): Where, O Grave, Is Your Victory by Ben Slee

Through all life’s sorrows and despairs
I will not be moved
When facing death I need not fear
I have this hope secured

Because Christ died at Calvary
Sin has on me no claim
Because he overcame the grave
With him I will be raised

Where, O grave, is your victory?
Where, O death, is your sting?
Eternity is won for me
By heaven’s eternal King

On that glorious final day
I will not sleep or fade
But gazing on his nail-pierced hands
I’ll instantly be changed

Where, O grave, is your victory?

Robed with immortality
Before his throne we’ll sing
At last reflecting perfectly
The glory of our King

Where, O grave, is your victory?
