The accounts of the resurrection of Christ are found in Matthew 28:1-10 and 16-20; Mark 16:1-8; Luke 24:1-12 and 36-53 and John 20:1-9.
The implications of hope for us are expressed in I Corinthians 15:12-21, Philippians 3:7-11 and Colossians 3:1-4.
In order to sing this song with greater depth, consider reading Heidelberg Catechism, Lord’s Day 17, Question and Answer 45, a reminder of the benefits of Christ’s resurrection: “…by his resurrection he has overcome death, so that he might make us share in the righteousness he obtained for us by his death…we too are already raised to a new life…”
This song speaks of a “risen Savior” and “I can face tomorrow” and “life is worth the living” because of the certainty of the resurrection of Christ. Our World Belongs to God, paragraph 25 testifies: “God raised him from the dead: he walked out of the grave, conqueror of sin and death—Lord of Life! We are set right with God, given new life, and called to walk with him in freedom from sin’s dominion.”
