We praise You, Lord Jesus, and push away any gloom,
for You are the Victorious One who was raised from the tomb.
You give hope that’s not wishful thinking but is joyful expectation.
We’re more than conquerors always because of Your dedication.
You’re seated at the Father’s right hand—the place that was due
to the One who was so obedient to Him—He calls You Faithful and True.
We’re “above” any circumstances, not “under,” because Your power
and the name of the Lord Jesus is our shelter and strong tower.
P. A. Oltrogge
“But God, who is rich in mercy, because of His great love with which He loved us, even when we were dead in our transgressions, made us alive together with Christ (by grace you have been saved), and raised us up with Him, and seated us with Him in the heavenly places in Christ Jesus, so that in the ages to come, He might show the surpassing riches of His grace in kindness toward us in Christ Jesus.” Ephesians 2:4-7
