This amazing song starts so slowly but then unfurls the mystery and amazingness of the reserection of Jesus.
Gods words to his beloved son...
Arise my love, Arise my love,
The grave no longer has a hold on you.
No more deaths sting,
No more suffering arise, Arise
It's the same words that God speaks to each of us when we give ourselves to him.
The fact that Jesus endured so much pain and suffering on the cross for us means that we can rise with him.
Sin, where are your shackles?
Death, where is your sting?
Hell; has been defeated.
The grave could not hold the king.
