He Won !

One of my favorite Easter songs ..."My Soul Says He Won"...has been on my mind for weeks now! I've listened to it over and over. I shared this with you all last Easter but just felt I wanted to post the words again this year as they are SO powerful and so true !!

I wish there was a link for you to connect and listen to it but there's not that I could find. It gives me chill bumps and makes me want to shout when I hear it sung! So without any more words from me here it is:

(Words & music by Patti Hawkins, Nettleton, MS)

Opinion and rumor, spread far and wide

When the word came that Jesus, had been crucified

Ones who had loved Him, were stricken with grief

Those who had feared Him sighed with relief.

Some cried “It’s over, I guess we were wrong.”

Some proudly boasted that they knew all along.

But the story continues, and to make it complete

I now can tell you, things weren’t as they seemed.


The crowd said “Defeated!”The world said, “He’s gone”

Satan said, “I’ve conqueredThis world as my own”

The cross said, “It’s finished”Death said, “It’s done”

But the tomb said, “I’m empty!”And my soul says, “He won!”

Now when opinions spread through the land

Saying that Jesus was merely a man

I’ll stand as a witness, for I know for sure

His life giving power forever endures.

When the crowd says “Defeated!”

And the world says, “He’s gone”

And Satan thinks he’s conquered, This world as his own

At the cross it was finished. Death thought it was done

But the tomb STILL stands empty...And my soul says, “He won!”

Amen and Amen! My soul certainly does rejoice that Jesus WON over death, sin and the grave to give us the opportunity of everlasting life!

"Amazing grace how sweet the sound! That saved a wretch like me!"

Happy Easter to everyone! May you feel His power in your life!

Hoping this resurrection week has been a good one for you, sister. I'm so glad you won Cindy's cards. I just love them, and so much more affordable than Hallmark! I keep a ready supply on hand; she's done some new ones at her blog. She also did some beautiful winter scenes a few months ago.

Take good care, and let's hope the tornadic activity in the south takes a long vacation!

I'm catching up on the blogs I follow, so I'm a little late commenting, but I love the words to the song. I would love to hear it sometime.
Love, Lisa
