69. Dancing on my grave

When Israel were captives

In Egypt bound as slaves

An angel of death

Took the first born sons away

But by the blood of a lamb

Israels sons were saved

Israel’s freedom was gained

And Egypt plundered on the way

.

So I’m dancing on my grave

For the old me is dead

Now I live in Christ enthroned

And I am a Son of God

Adversity has no hold on me

For I have risen with Christ eternally

He is my resurrection 

And my complete salvation

.

When the armies of Pharaoh 

Were bearing down on Israel

Moses held a staff high

And the water gave way

A path to safety was given

And the enemy all taken

God’s victory was seen

In Israel’s salvation

.

So I’m dancing on my grave

For the old me is dead

Now I live in Christ enthroned

And I am a Son of God

Adversity has no hold on me

For I have risen with Christ eternally

He is my resurrection 

And my complete salvation

.

As Israel wandered through the desert

Food and water God gave them

Their clothes did not wear out

Nor their feet become swollen

And when serpents attacked

God gave them the solution

They lived on God’s provision

As God’s children and nation

.

So I’m dancing on my grave

For the old me is dead

Now I live in Christ enthroned

And I am a Son of God

Adversity has no hold on me

For I have risen with Christ eternally

He is my resurrection 

And my complete salvation

.

When Israel then entered

God’s land promised to them 

It was as fruitful and green

A place to live as kings

But enemies remained there

Who they battled for their claim

And when Israel battled God’s way

Their kingdom they gained.

.

So I’m dancing on my grave

For the old me is dead

Now I live in Christ enthroned

And I am a Son of God

Adversity has no hold on me

For I have risen with Christ eternally

He is my resurrection 

And my complete salvation

.

Like Israel the nation

I was once a slave, a captive

But Jesus blood set me free

From sin and sinful me

And through deserts and battles

He gives victory and provisions

God’s promised land is mine

Because His victory lives in me

.

So I’m dancing on my grave

For the old me is dead

Now I live in Christ enthroned

And I am a Son of God

Adversity has no hold on me

For I have risen with Christ eternally

He is my resurrection 

And my complete salvation
