O Praise The Name (Anastasis)

Verse 1
I cast my mind to Calvary
Where Jesus bled and died for me
I see his wounds, his hands, his feet
My Savior on that cursed tree

Verse 2
His body bound and drenched in tears
They laid Him down in Joseph’s tomb
The entrance sealed by heavy stone
Messiah, still and all alone

Chorus
O praise the name of the Lord our God
O praise His name forevermore
For endless days we will sing Your praise
O Lord, O Lord our God

Verse 3
Then on the third, at break of dawn
The Son of Heaven rose again
O trampled death, where is your sting?
The angels roar for Christ the King

Verse 4
He shall return in robes of white
The blazing Son shall pierce the night
And I will rise among the saints
My gaze transfixed on Jesus’ face
