The Cross Was Not The End: An Easter Song

Here is a new children’s Easter song written for our Creative Worship Sundays project!  Thanks Bill and Courtney!

“The Cross Was Not The End”
(c) 2009 Bill & Courtney Bell

Audio (m4a format), Lead Sheet, Chord Sheet

Jesus came to the earth to fulfill God’s plan
Knowing he would suffer and die.
He brought truth to the crowds who rejected him
As they mocked and yelled: “Crucify!”

But the cross was not the end:
By his death he conquered sin.
No grave could keep him in.
There is power in Christ who rose again.
There is power in Christ who rose again.

Jesus came in the flesh living without sin;
Yet he took our sin and shame.
He endured the wrath of God we deserved to bear
So God’s love would be displayed.

For the cross was not the end:
By his death he conquered sin.
No grave could keep him in.
There is grace in Christ who rose again.
There is grace in Christ who rose again.

O Death, where is your sting?
O Grave, where is your victory? (repeat)

For the cross is not the end.
Through his death we’ve died to sin
When by faith we cling to him.
Knowing death is dead, we’ll live again.
Knowing death is dead, we’ll live again.
