Because He emptied Himself of all but love, you can be filled.
Because His body was broken, your life can be whole.
Because His blood was shed, your sin can be forgiven.
Because He submitted to injustice, you can forgive.
Because He finished His Father's work, your life has worth.
Because He was forsaken, you will never be alone.
Because He was buried, you can be raised.
Because He lives, you don't have to be afraid.
Because He was raised, you can live eternally.
Because He reached down to you,
you don't have to work your way up to Him.
Because His promises are always true, you can have HOPE!
Because Christ did not remain in the tomb,
But conquered death by rising again,
We can live in the joy of the full salvation
Provided by a risen, living, coming Redeemer!
